Prism Vessel

By Sally Prangley

The idea behind this vessel is what color emanating from a prism might look like if captured and shaped into a solid, 3-dimensional form. This vessel is made from a variety of papers, built up and out, one side at a time. There are open parts on several of the sides that I call “windows.” Some of these windows have annealed steel wire across their frames, others are completely open. The interior base has multiple levels. I describe this vessel as “balanced asymmetry”. The colors of the rainbow are used in progression, starting with yellow transitioning to orange, red, pinks, purples, blues, and greens. The interior walls have the same colors as their external counterparts. The vessel is sealed for use. Because of the way they are made, no two Prism Vessels are alike.
