Color and Form Exploration with Glass

A tribute to 500th anniversary of Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights A contemporary interpretation of his work as a composition of glass pieces. I wanted to capture fleshy feeling of distorted fruits he depicted in the painting.

Concept

A contemporary  take on Bosch`s  Masterpiece and reinterpretation with glass.

Utopian`s drinking vessel.


Symbolizes abundance, and eartly pleasures.With abolition of  labour, utopians have more time for cooking, drinking festivals and eartly pleasures.
