Entry description

Hand crafted vase manufactured from sheet pewter aimed at the Arts market. The imagery symbolises freedom, depicting birds in flight, fleeing a dark void for the light of the sky and space. The circle form is symbolic of the world and patination is used to create effects of darkness and light.
