July 2018 - This is 'BlackGOLD' a limited edition of 10 new pieces from Charles Karadimos.
The exterior body is made with a clear glass that has been slumped into a lightweight and easy to hold shape. After slumping, gold leaf was applied to the inside and then permanently sealed with a black sealer. The resulting appearance provides a uniquely beautiful antique look.
The free-moving, dry object cell contains handmade ampules, lampworked and cut glass and a small amount of gold leaf. A tapered two-mirror system produces perfect 10-point symmetry and a black glass eye piece adds to the charm of this collectible piece.
Numbered 1 in the edition of 10, signed and dated by the artist. 7.75“ tall x 2.75" wide at the base.
