The glass objects in Mitrani's Colors collection are bound by various materials; steel, aluminum or copper ribbon and wiring, or steel framed cubes.

The glass is then blown so as to push out beyond the constraining ribbon or wire.

Says Mitrani, "The framework is present like a heavy jewel. Its ad-hoc development in space enables the glass to bloom in all directions."

"I wanted the sensation of constraint to be striking, obvious at first glance. The large dimensions of the vase also add to the dramatic effect."
