Lapis & Pearl
Beak Form Series, Cane Series
Size: 14.5″ x 8″ x 2.5″
artist: Patrick Kerry Brown
Lapis blue and pearl white cane were rolled up to form this wonderful sculptural vessel.
These beak forms by Patrick are reminiscent of a curved bird’s beak. It is a delight to watch the color application which is different for each one and to see the beak being pulled and curved.
Cane is a color application where a thin rod of glass is made from various rods of glass of different colors to form a design. Cane ranges from simple to complex. A simple cane is basically a cylinder of colored glass coated with clear glass. There is also cased cane where the clear is coated with a color. Then with complex cane there are multiple designs, really only limited by the creator’s skill and imagination.
