Introducing a captivating collaboration between two glass virtuosos, SALT Glass and Hardman Art Glass – the Hippo masterpiece. With a breathtaking array of colors, including Grizzly and the transformative Spanish Olive (achieved through SALT's ingenious glasswork), this piece is a testament to the boundless creativity of these artisans. From its captivating color palette to its intricate detailing, the Hippo piece tells a story of evolution, transformation, and artistry.
Colors and Metamorphosis: This exceptional piece boasts an enchanting palette of colors that evoke a sense of both nature and mutation. Grizzly lends depth and earthiness, while Spanish Olive, a creation born from the innovative fusion of TV glass using bars of glass called gunmount pulled out of the back of old TVs, undergoes a remarkable metamorphosis in the flame, transforming into a stunning green hue – a shade that SALT affectionately refers to as Spanish Olive. The piece tells a story of transformation and evolution, evident in its design details.
UV Accents and Design Elements: Throughout the piece, subtle UV accents add an ethereal touch, casting a mystical glow under certain lighting conditions. The Hippo is a canvas that captures the fusion of SALT and Hardman Art Glass's unparalleled skill. Notable features include:
Mutating Salt Monster Aesthetics: The Grizzly and Spanish Olive colors seamlessly blend to create a captivating illusion of a salt monster evolving from the form of a hippo. This transformative narrative adds depth and intrigue to the piece.
Eye and Soul Window: One side of the hippo's belly features a large, expressive eye that commands attention, while the other side boasts a clear "soul window." This intriguing duality invites contemplation and interaction, adding a unique layer to the piece's narrative.
Teeth and Creature Tail: The hippo's teeth seamlessly transition into sharp salt monster teeth, capturing the essence of mutation and evolution. The tail, adorned with a textured Spanish Olive ring, undergoes its own transformation into a thick creature tail – a balance between familiarity and innovation.
Tan Tail and Pink Suction Cups: The tail, in its tan hue, stands as a testament to the interconnectedness of art and nature. Pink suction cups add a whimsical touch, highlighting the tactile experience and encouraging exploration.
Joint Size and Dimensions: With a 10mm joint, the Hippo masterpiece is primed for versatile use and customization. It boasts dimensions of 6.5" L x 2" W x 3.5" H, commanding attention while remaining an elegant addition to any collection.
Witness the magic of SALT Glass and Hardman Art Glass as they bring the Hippo to life, a masterpiece that captures the essence of transformation, evolution, and artistic brilliance. From the captivating Spanish Olive transformation to the exquisite detailing that breathes life into the piece, this creation is more than a glass art – it's an artistic journey, a tribute to collaboration, and a testament to the limitless possibilities that glassblowing presents.
