High Cliff Studio: 12" Round Lumen Bowl
This is a very rare Lumen Bowl by Scott Amrhein of High Cliff Studios. This bowl is on a tall, three-tiered base and it measures 12" in diameter and 9" tall. The base is 7"x9".
Scott had access to a limited supply of this glass material, which he formed into bowls by slumping in a glass kiln. In this process, the glass stretches, leaving unique patterns and striations. Scott finished the edge with a copper rim and placed it on a minimalist base of wood and copper. Because the glass has a slightly metallic sheen, the bowl will pick up color from its environment, say a colorful runner below it, even while it appears to be crisply neutral. When the glass material supply ran out, Scott retired and these fabulous vessels are no longer being produced.
