THE ITEM
I think it's pretty safe to say that this piece is striking. With the peak wave of the 'splash' down to the base measuring around c. 43 cm / 17", it would be difficult for this sculpture to not be a centrepiece.

The amethyst is deep and intense at the base and gradually grows paler as it reaches upward, white ripples reaching outwards towards the end of each wave accentuates the height. This is a wonderfully executed piece of mid-century art glass.

And if you really, really, really wanted to; you could also use it as a bowl. If you really wanted to....
