Satin, matt finish on base colours, with cut and polished coloured clear glass.

The collaboration between the artist and the glassblowers is particularly intense in the Reflection objects. The process of surface treatment is very demanding and "guided randomness" plays an essential role. The simple vase shape allows an exciting interplay between the satinated, matt finished background and the oval, transparent coloured areas.

Markku Piri doesn’t often use lemon yellow, but this Reflection series tempted him. The matt finish gives the yellow a softer glow, and the greens and the reds glow as the glossy accent. It is nice to see, how the look is both “Scandinavian” but also quite sensuous, as if the polished accent colour ovals were caressing the vase.
