Mouth blown glass, clear, with two layers of coloured glass, satin finish, polished vertical cuts.

This monumental glass vase, produced using an extremely sophisticated technique with several colour variations, consists of three different superimposed glass layers. These three colours react to each other and produce exciting light effects with translucent light sources. The shape, with its opening rays, was inspired by the lotus blossom, which was a popular element in both ancient Egypt and Art Deco.

In the series Rays of Sun, Markku Piri was hoping for the ultimate elegance in the collaboration with the Murano Master Simone Cedenese. The satin finished, soft and round surface is a deep charcoal grey, and the carefully cut rays reveal, through rough clear glass, a sophisticated aqua blue tone. These are vases, for sure, but their status or mood is of sculptures.
