The cross shaped splash of opaque colour creates a totally unique contemporary abstract design which is perfectly framed within a deep red trim to the rim. The magnificent layers of colour blend and combine to create a striking range of tones and random effects. A truly stunning colour combination and fabulously bold contemporary design.
This exquisite piece stands upon a squat applied clear glass foot which beautifully elevates the vibrantly coloured bowl allowing the light to illuminate the glass and be appreciated from every angle. This piece has a slightly uneven, organically shaped form reinforcing the fact that this is an individual and unique hand crafted work of art.This fabulous piece looks spectacular with light passing through the glass to illuminate the striking warm tones. This stunning art glass bowl is presented in excellent vintage condition, with no chips, cracks or repairs.
There are a few incredibly light and fine surface scratches to the interior, noticeable only on extremely close examination in bright raking light but mentioned for complete accuracy. This piece has been well cared for and presents spectacularly. This piece is beautifully signed and dated to the base "J McM 98".
This impressive gallery quality contemporary glass piece stands approx 90mms tall and measures 205mms in diameter.

McMurtrie attributes them with not only sharing their artistic inspiration and knowledge of glass but also their keen business sense and practical skills in setting up and maintaining a workshop. McMurtrie established his own purpose built studio at the base of the Grampian Mountains in 2003, where he draws inspiration from the surrounding ancient rock formations and natural beauty.McMurtrie is a widely exhibited artist, with works appearing in public and private collections both in Australia and overseas. This exceptional piece would make an outstanding addition to any James McMurtrie or quality Australian Studio art glass collection. This striking piece would make a fine artistic feature in any contemporary modern designed space.
