Quill & Ink

Limited of 5 pieces
Sold Out

A limited edition 5 black and 5 rainbow glass blowing sculptures by Layne Rowe.

The Quill and Ink sets are inspired by a poem written by Sana Olivia Hernandez.  The five feather quills each symbolise a different figure.  A raven’s feather, dipping into black ink, symbolises a mourner writing of death. The hen’s feather, brown with a white top, writes with pink ink symbolising a mother writing of love. An eagle feather, writes in red ink resembling a soldier using the enemy’s blood to write of war.  The blue feather of a phoenix, with multicoloured ink, used by the artist to imagine a wonderful world. Finally, a swan feather, held by a beauty writing in dazzling white ink of this repulsive world.

“The soldier

An Eagle Feather

Using the enemy’s blood as ink

He writes of war


A mother

A hens Feather

Using sweet pink ink

She writes of love


A mourner

A ravens Feather

Black despairing ink

He writes of death



A poetic Blue phoenix

He writes with dreams

Dipped in imagination

And create a better world”
