This unusual and innovative work is the very first in a new series of pieces designed by Rachael Woodman. The actual glass blowing was done by her collaborator, Neil Wilkin.

The sumptuous use of gold and purple has royal overtones. The gold ‘medallion’ is also a blown bubble of black glass overlaid with gold leaf, which has crackled attractively with the expansion.
