 The razor thinness of the peaks and valleys allow light to penetrate the surface giving the edges and deep recesses their glow. Cast from translucent porcelain the interior is illuminated using LED lights to allow the jar to diffuse and reflect light into intricate and unexpected patterns. Each piece is slipcast and pierced to produce unique openings for light to escape.
