Blue Shard Vase by Susan Rankin
Susan Rankin's Shard vessels are hot blown glass and made in her studio in Apsley, Ontario. They are a painterly approach to surface design that is accomplished by layering colours glass to a solid bubble of hot glass. Once the design and colour she desires is accomplished, she shapes the vessel to accentuate the subtle details within the glass. Susan Rankin has show extensively in Canada and internationally.
