A Landscape Translated into Liquid Glass

I mentioned we picked up a vase in New Zealand. Here's a few pics of it:

The pictures really don't do it justice. It's part of the Volcanic Series, produced by Lava Glass New Zealand, and is described thusly:

In the Volcanic Series master glass artist Lynden Over explores New Zealand’s scenery. He uses a layering technique where trails of liquid glass are controlled to create coloured landscapes.

What I find so remarkable is how well the abstract design captures the perfectly blue and turbulent waters of Huka Falls, the inspiration for the piece. See what I mean?

What a powerful reminder that abstract art can capture a very non-abstract moment in a powerful and meaningful way.
