This collectable miniature vase is part of a special commission for the British Museum by Jonathan Harris, a widely-collected contemporary glass designer.
The Cosmos design is inspired by the royal paintings owned by the Rulers of Jodhpur, India, as featured in the British Museum exhibition: Garden and Cosmos. Dated between the 17th and 19th centuries, these paintings reflect the rich and colourful culture of Jodhpur.
Here Jonathan Harris has translated these paintings through the medium of glass. The Cosmos pattern is created with internal multicolour trails and 24ct gold leaf. A teal-coloured core forms a striking backdrop to the decor.
The vase measures 12cm tall. Each one comes signed, dated and gift boxed. Other items in the Cosmos collection are also available.
