This dazzling Octopus Scene Luminous Crystal Bowl from Evergreen Crystal features an awe-inducing representation of your favorite tentacled sea creature carved by hand with exquisite detail. With tentacles sprawling in elegant curves around the bowl, this marine-inspired etched bowl was created using a unique and painstaking process called sandblasting to achieve the remarkable depth of the design. A memorable addition to any decor, the Octopus Scene Luminous Crystal Bowl from Evergreen was designed by master crystal carver and artist Lorraine Coyle and inspired by the one-of-a-kind nature of the wild.
About Evergreen Crystal
EVERGREEN CRYSTAL is created through a labor-intensive process that begins with the artist, Lorraine (Lori) Coyle sketching each design by hand.
Each EVERGREEN CRYSTAL vessel is individually hand carved by sand expelled with varying speeds and pressures, one layer at a time. A final layer is applied to each piece as delicately and finely as air brushed artwork.
The multi-layered carving reaches a level of depth that accounts for its 3-dimensional detail.
This deliberate, lengthy process of multi-layering is unique among producers of crystal artwork.
In 1989, Lori received a call from The White House needing a number of vases in a mere week featuring a flag design unfurling in a field of stars. This piece became the 1989 American Success Awards, presented to notable Americans including George Strait and Norma Kamali.
The White House commission led to other noteworthy projects for the likes of the National Press Foundation awards (given to Ed Bradley, Barbara Walters and Ann Landers), Rose Bowl trophies, Exxon corporate awards, The Phoenix Golf Open, and the 1984 Olympic sponsor prize awards.
