ShiKai Tseng has decorated a range of vases by covering them in photo-sensitive solution then exposing them inside individual pinhole cameras which are placed in an environment that ends up recorded on the surface of each vase.

Josef Albers was a German-born American artist, mathematician and educator, with a fascination for colour theory and squares. He also taught at the Bauhaus where he worked as a crafts master in the glass workshops.
Mexican artist Gabriel Orozco had this to say about Albers’s famous book on colour thoery, Interaction of Color (1963).
“It is one of the most subtle books on colour that exists. It really affects the eye; there is something kinetic about it. Each page is beautiful, and the quality of the print and the paper is intense. It is perfect.”
Copies of the Interaction of Color by Josef Albers are available here on Amazon.
Read on for more examples of Albers’s work.
