Rounded, fluffy puffs of white glass push up through a copper mesh and merge smoothly with the surrounding clear glass. The interior of 84 is flawed and multilayered, creating a deceptively light object—like a flash-frozen billow of smoke.
Some 84s have a low-voltage bulb installed to provide a lamp with a warm, coppery glow. Others are sheared with a diamond saw to form a vase (84.2), which is somewhat flattened on one end. The cut displays the border between 84’s three layers as well as the inner cavity. This ambling perimeter, which is unique to each 84, is emphasised further by the use of brilliantly coloured glass for the interior layer.
