Enso Skirt Vase in Spring Green by Studio Paran, Richard Jones
Richard Jones of Studio Paran creates this artistic, blown glass Enso Skirt Vase shown in autumn. A band of silver leaf with a thread of black glass adorns the vase form. The Enso series takes it's name from the circle (or enso) motif found in zenga ink paintings, done by Japanese zen priests. These are typically done as a demonstration of the teachers mind for aspiring disciples, providing at once a teaching moment and a reminder of the Way. There are a variety of shapes and colors available.
Handmade in the USA.

Due to the nature of handcrafted work, subtle variations are natural.
Studio Paran is the creative endeavor of master glass blower Richard Jones. He has been blowing glass for over 25 years. While reflecting on the vases he creates, Richard states "over that time I've come to realize the primacy of the flower. Making a vase is not just making another object of home decor, but creating an exquisite frame for flowers. It is an opportunity to engage a dialogue between vase, craftsman, landscape, flower, arranger, and guest. It is a bridge between human built architecture and the organic landscape."
His exquisite vases are functional works of art.
His life as an artist began early with drawing lessons from a small town neighbor that propelled him on a path that lead to a BFA in glass from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1988. Since then he has worked for and with other glass artists and in 2006 took over full ownership of Studio Paran.
