Description

Untitled (Glass Bowl)

Hand blown glass
7 h. x 9" dia. OVERALL
Beginning in 1988, the Norton Family sent a limited edition Christmas gift to a wide list of friends in the art community including art institutions. Commissioned by an artist, the gift encompassed a variety of multi-media artworks including a porcelain ashtray, a printed fan, a woven blanket, a lifesaver, a dollhouse and a crazy coffee cup all of which later became a part of the Norton Family Art Projets In this project, Suh continues exploring the cultural meaning of space by creating a vessel with an impression of his own outstretched hands offering creative energy as a gift. With this gesture of generosity, something ephemeral solidifies and something deeply personal becomes social. The vessel was hand blown by Punxsutawney Tile and Glass Company in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania
