DESIGN

The reverse design by Canadian artist Maurice Gervais peers into the underwater world off Canada’s coast, where colour over detailed engraving highlights the coral, ferns and rocks that lie beneath the gentle waves. On the left, a handcrafted embellishment by Canadian glass artist Loïc Beaumont-Tremblay contains a sea turtle-shaped Mosaic Murini element. The mosaic-based approach to this glass art technique lends itself well to recreating the turtle’s distinctive appearance, from its shell to its clawed feet and tail. Positioned to mimic the turtle’s movements through the water, the Murini piece is itself enclosed in its own glass “shell” sculpted from borosilicate glass.
