My glass vessels are an allegory of the inherent mystery of the natural world. Beneath the surface of all
things lies a matrix of complexity, from the crash of a wave to the wings of a butterfly. In mathematics
it’s called the Fibonacci sequence: the inspiration for the Coral Series.
Known for centuries, the pattern has been admired by artists including Leonardo and Le Corbusier. It
appears in the rings of Saturn, the branches of plants, and in the human form.
‘The book of nature is written in the language of mathematics,’ said Galileo. But why? Could the
pattern be only coincidence?
These vessels take the Fibonacci sequence as their premise due to the vessels originally resembling a
spider’s web. They do not attempt to provide a solution to the puzzle, but are a celebration of a
beautiful enigma.
