Karla Trinkley, Rosette, 1994, cast glass, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of the James Renwick Alliance, 1998.35
Karla Trinkley took colors and shapes she found on cinder-block fences in the tropics and applied them to Rosette. The thick walls on this enormous vessel appear carved from stone, but Trinkley’s delicate color and pattern give it a lightness and fragility despite its obvious weight.
