Artists: Salt & Hamstafam
“Rip Flask” created in collaboration with Salt and Joshua Hamstafam (from Portland, Oregon, who's been blowing glass for over 22years). The small but mighty rig is triangular, flask shape and confronts the viewer with a creature adored with a set of tiny but sharp teeth resembling a bird’s beak along with two hypnotizing eyes. The piece includes small protruding glass nobs and mesmerizing green-ish gold orbs which were achieved using the fuming technique. The “Rip Flask” creature resemble something from a nightmare or a Hieronymus Bosch painting but, don’t be put off by its ghoulish appearance; this piece is sure to stand out in any collection. The artists also created a hollow space between the walls to gently nestle the down stem, ensuring a smooth functional form.
