The ocean always manages to capture our attention every time we look at it. Numerous poems have been written and are still being written about the beauty of the ocean and now, it seems like these two artists have captured the beauty and stillness in their artistic vases. Paul DeSomma and Marsha Blaker are glass artists for “Kela’s Art Gallery’ based in Kauai, Hawaii. They have perfectly captured the serene and idyllic beauty of waves in incredible glass vases.
If you take a look at their website, you will see a myriad of other beautiful glass art inspired by the sea. In order to make these stunning vases, they used a variety of powdered, colored glasses and then create many layers to give the gorgeous aqua-themed color. Along with this, chips of broken glass are used to decorate and give the ‘foam’ effect of a wave and it works perfectly.
Additionally, the artists themselves love the ocean and they have also lived close to it. Not to anyone's surprise, the vases have become extremely popular. Kela's Glass gallery is annually nominated as one of the Niche Top 100 Craft Retailers and it rightfully deserves so.
Just taking a look at these vases gives us a sense of calm, not to mention that we are completely blown away at their beauty and that is what makes them so beautiful and unique.
While we are on the topic of ocean-based art, then we are sure that these resin tables that look like ocean waves washing up on the shore are sure to take your breath away. These tables were crafted by Jared Davis and Rivka Wilkins where Davis does the woodwork, while Wilkins uses a unique resin technique to capture the spirit of the crashing ocean waves. In an interview, Davis said he approached Wilkins for a collaboration after stumbling upon her work on Instagram and since then, they have been partners.
Davis said, "She seemed totally genuine and actually our first collaboration was a giveaway for my 40k follower mark. I had her do resin waves on that first bench and we gave it away. It went so well that we decided to be partners and start building more of them!”
In order to create these masterpieces, Davis selects a live-edge slab, after that, he cuts and shapes the slab in the shape of a table before shipping them to Rivka, who then starts working her magic on the slab.
Davis added, "It just seems like a supernatural pairing of two things that we find in nature. Although the resin isn’t actual water, Rivka creates the effect better than almost anybody. So seeing those waves follow the natural curves of the live edge slab which mimic the natural curves of shoreline is truly unique.”
Rivka also quipped in, saying, "I always want to be pushing myself and to discover new and exciting things. I still travel and hope to never stop experiencing the world. I stumbled upon fluid art, which led to the resin. I love this form of art because it forces me to let go of control. I constantly find inspiration in the world around me but especially in space, the sky and the flow of water.”
