99 Bottles: Sculptural Bottle 080

The 99 Bottles series is a sculptural look at the familiar form of the bottle. An archetype of functional glassware for a wide array of products, the humble bottle is also a canvas for form and the imagination. Michael Moran explores its possibilities as an expressive spatial object in these lively and imaginative pieces, from primitive forms to anamorphic sculptures each bottle is unique as an object for display or use. Techniques include multiple layer color applications, water-crackling for deep texture, and media blasting with hand rubbing to impart a velato finish.
