Description: Richard Royal
American; born 1952
Diamond Cut Vessel, 1991
blown glass
Studio glass vase by Seattle artist Richard Royal. A particularly attractive example from Royal's Diamond Cut series, this piece combines a soothing color palette with a graceful sense of movement. The pattern in this monumental vessel was created by layering deep sea green, opaque white, and transparent blue in an internal "blank" which was cooled and cut using a diamond saw" before being reheated, gathered over, and blown into its final form. Etched signature: "Richard Royal 1991."

According to Royal, " the Diamond Cuts are about color and form, expressing joy and spontaneity. The simple color applications are an indication of the 'inner self' and the 'outer self' becoming more integrated and willing to be seen."

About Richard Royal:

Richard Royal is best known for creating large, colorful blown glass sculptures. His work is sensual, fluid and bold. Throughout his career, Royal has used the vessel as a canvas for exploring complex emotional and spiritual concepts.

Royal began working as a hot glass sculptor in 1978 at the Pilchuck Glass School. He worked way through the ranks and became one of Dale Chihuly's main assistants, which consequently led to Royal's emergence in the fine art glass world in the early 1980's. Royal has since been exhibiting his work internationally in solo and group exhibitions for over 30 years. His work is included in renowned public and private collections worldwide. Recognized internationally as one of the most skilled and talented glassblowers in the American studio glass movement, Royal often teaches as both a guest artist and teacher at various universities and at Pilchuck Glass School.
