Lalique takes the form of a bottle stopper and lets it unfurl into branches heavy with fruit. I imagine the rounded topography of the berries, the bead-like drupelets. I wondered if there was an ombre berry like the ones in Lalique’s imagination, and found salmonberries. Sometimes when I eat raw berries my lips swell like drupelets, but in cooked in a pie I am ready to take them on.
The Lalique exhibit at The Corning Museum of Glass (until January, 4, 2015)is a treasure trove of orange. Stratoz took this photo of the Formose goldfish vase for me. The fins flow gracefully together enveloping the surface. It was made by blowing a gather of hot glass into a mold ~ mold-blown glass.
