From the hand of US award winning Glass master Kenny Pieper comes this stunning Red Hurricane Bowl.

This has been in my personal collection since acquired directly from the artist.

In my quest to downsize this is an opportunity to acquire a unique and superb piece - In excellent condition.

The initial image is a montage image from the studio - This is an offering for ONE bowl.

This dramatic bowl can simply be admired for it stunning intricate pattern. The bowl is constructed using the Incalmo or “double bubble” technique where a bubble of cane is joined with a bubble of clear or red glass. The effect is radiant and stunning.

The name ‘incalmo’, was applied to glass in the first half of the twentieth century by the Venini factory on Murano, in Venice. However, both the word and the method are much older.

Kenny Pieper was born in Birmingham, Alabama and raised in the mountains of North Carolina. He began his craft career in high school when he studied at the Penland School of Crafts. Initially, he studied pottery with Norm Schulman and Cynthia Bringle. Later, he found his passion for glass under the tutelage of Richard Ritter.

After high school, Kenny moved to Detroit in 1978 under scholarship at the Center for Creative Studies; he subsequently received his B.F.A. from California College of Art and Design, Oakland, CA. he then spent 16 years working as a glassblower in the San Francisco East Bay area. Kenny’s career came full circle when he left California and moved back to North Carolina. While constructing a studio there, He worked at Penland School and managed the glassblowing and lampworking studios. It was during this fruitful time that he developed his expertise in the tradition of Italian glass.

Kenny now resides in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. Reflecting the harmony and beauty of his surroundings, Kenny produces an exquisite line of glass vessels and sculpture
