A Spring Fling

Just as spring is symbolic of new beginnings, a spring refresh of your home decor can add visual interest and provide an elegant backdrop for the season soirees. Spring is also the perfect opportunity to declutter, and what better reward for a job well done than a new object d’art? We’ve curated a few of our favorite unique finds: conversation starters, or merely a quiet nod to a life, well lived.

Cherry Blossom Seaform Set with Black Lip Wraps, 1998, 11 x 29 x 32”
Locarno Green Seaform Set with Amber Yellow Lip Wraps, 2000, 13 x 27 x 24”
Chihuly’s Seaforms are thin and transparent. Spiral wraps of color envelope the pieces and the use of optic molds strengthens the glass and gives a ribbed effect. The result: pieces with natural rhythm and fluidity—tributes to the sea.

Hand Blown Glass | $8,500-$10,500
Hunt Slonem | Slonem’s new blown-glass sculptures are a sublime visual manifestation of the artist’s sense of play. Each unique work’s hand formed composition reflects his gestural and loose engagement with the materials, much like his tactile interaction with his beloved oils. Whether seen in large groupings similar to his commanding large works on canvas, or individually, Slonem’s bunnies present the viewer with a dazzling spectacle of color-fueled inertia. Produced at his West Coast studio in Seattle, Washington, Slonem and his team of artisan glassblowers collaborate on new works with the same quick gestural dance of his paint brush marks on canvas.
