Bob and Laurie Kliszewski, a husband and wife team, are known for their blown glass signature series called “Bobtanicals.” These series bring to life a world of plant inspired bottles. Adorned with ruffled, flower-like shapes and topped with removable stoppers that echo the flower’s stamen, these vessels are joyful and whimsical. Vibrant colors and a semi-translucent surface are enhanced by sandblasting and acid etching techniques. The playful use of color, form and lively surface accents give these works a life of their own. While abstracted in form, viewers will often comment how “alive” they are, just like a real tropical plants.
