Michael Eden found inspiration for his Audrey light and vase in Renato Giuseppe Bertelliкs interpretation of portraiture with the sculpture •Continuous Profile, Head of Mussolini, 1933к. Eden has reworked the concept by replacing the powerful profile of Mussolini with one that represents infinite classic beauty, Audrey Hepburn. The idea of mirror imaging silhouettes resonates in Edenкs design. The outer part is individually free-blown where the form is controlled by the skill of the blower, the inner part is blown into a mould to form the complex shapes required. The vase uses the contrast between the inside and outside components to juxtapose strong and subtle colours.
