BREATHE PROTOTYPE

28"H X 8"W X 11"D

If a breaking wave travels over undulations in the ocean floor, it can be referred to as “breathing” -- a subtle expanding and contracting of the wave as it moves. JP’s Breathe forms, usually hand engraved to embody the movement of the water, are representative of this action and his many days spent watching the waves.

The new piece features a Breathe form that has been reconstructed from faceted sections of glass. Working with this piece has inspired Canlis to push the limits of his Breathe series.

Hand blown glass.
Available for purchase.
