SMOKY BLUE DOUBLE PEEL
10"H X 58"W X 10"D
Incorporating the same form as his Peel series, JP plays with the concept of a set of waves coming into shore. The lifelong search for perfect waves inspired JP to create the Peel series. A peeling wave, breaking in a hollow manner, is perfection to a surfer. The Peel form is difficult and somewhat complicated to blow in glass – a parallel to the complexity of the moment when the ocean lines up perfectly to create a peeling wave.
Two separate hand blown pieces.
Donated to Pilchuck Glass School Auction 2010.
