For these pieces Cathryn brings together strand upon strand of fine glass cane which she then works with in many layers, turning them into a deep and complex bowls. The final form of the piece is of something familiar, found in nature, yet the use of glass adds the dimension of surprise for this container for new life. The fragile vessel nestling eggs is made from enduring bronze or crystal.
