Eyeball by Czech glass artist Václav Cigler made of cut solid optical glass, satin finished, signed under base and with vapor deposited gold as iris.
Václav Cigler, 83, is one of the preeminent artists working in glass today. A master of the Czech glass movement for over 40 years, his innovations using optical glass have transformed the possibilities for the glass medium. His work focuses on the most essential forms - circles, spheres, cylinders, rectangular elements - in which brilliant reflections and refractions of light play on and through the pieces. This sculpture is depicting a view to the west which indicates freedom.
