Paul Insect’s penchant for unconventional materials in experimental combinations finds new form in an edition of lurid glass and steel sculptures.

Drawn to the malleability and possibilities of glass, Insect collaborated closely with a Dutch foundry to translate his signature splashes of colour into glass drips and intriguing facial features. Rigid steel legs support the intricately formed, deep-set vessel – topped by an ornate, removable lid.

The Sweetie Jar motif first appeared in the artist’s solo show Personal Effects as a series of puppet-like drawings and unique glass sculptures.

“Each of the jars have their own slightly different character – truly handcrafted works.”

To ensure safest handling, orders will via shipped with white glove service within 8-10 weeks of launch.
