Tynan Pratumwon

Ty specializes in his own style of glass basket as well as his Venetian style of glassware. The baskets are an idea that began in a time of high stress and contemplation for Ty.  The idea was to make a piece that held a pattern reminiscent of a woven basket, complete it with a texture that needed to be touched, and then sculpted to fold like fabric. The form prior to sculpting is symmetrically round, the ideal of most vessels.  In the final moments of working, the lip is pushed into the finished form, taking away the perfection of the round.
