These sculptural works by Oliver Doriss posses an Asian aesthetic, stand ten inches tall and feature a potent botanical composition encased within this thickness of glass. These intimate vignettes are composed from natural elements such as fern fronds, small branches and leaves. During the encasing process the organic matter is entirely vaporized by the heat of the glass leaving behind an ghost-like outline. The ephemeral imprint is brought to life with the addition of raw silver foil, metallic glass powders and reactive shards. This particular style of "botanical decoration" is a signature design of Oliver's derived from his experiences and learning through the Cast Glass Vessel series. Each of these sculptures is one of a kind and individually numbered.
