An airy vase – bright as the yellow near the edge of the sun – contrasts with intense turquoise blue bands of delicate zanfirico cane. Stunning!
Solar Flare demonstrates Ben’s mastery of color, contrast and texture. The lacy bands of zanfirico cane are incredibly delicate. The use of the intense contrasting turquoise blue ensures that they remain a defining element in this wonderful piece.
This is a significant piece, about 20 inches tall! However, it has a light and airy feel that allow it to be placed in smaller display locations.
Ben Tullman frequently uses striking colors and creative patterns in his fine art glass sculptures. Furthermore, he has mastered the creative and modern use of murrini and cane. Often, Tullman produces large scale glass sculptures made with exquisite patterns. However, Tullman’s glass artwork has a sense of whimsy that belies the complexity and control required.
