Web Description: 
Groot subverts the functionality of her vessel by creating a thorny surface, and she subverts the shine and transparency of her material by encrusting it with a thick enamel coating. The enamel, rather than the glass, defines the color and texture of the vessel. The gloss and luminosity of the glass are revealed at the shoulder, creating an interesting juxtaposition of materials.
