Web Description: 
The title of this piece, which is both an intimate sculpture and a functional box, refers to Clegg’s interest in Japanese decorative arts and traditional materials. The curved form is that of a bamboo stalk, while the vibrant opaque orange echoes the intense hues of Japanese lacquers. The muted translucency of the colorless glass softens and brings light into the object.
