The extraordinary craftsmanship—horizontal bevel cuts on the outside and vertical bevel cuts on the inside produces a brilliant optical effect, rendered all the more intricate in the light. The Eye Vase maximizes the unpredictability of perception, evoking delight and surprise about what the eye can discern with shifts in luminosity. The tiers gently ripple, thus imbuing a sense of movement, a rippling continuum. The gleaming symmetry plays on perspective, as the refractions of light create great depth throughout the layers. The contours conjure a Clear crystal cyclone, magnetically pulling you in like a vortex. The entrancing attributes of the Eye vase are also characteristic of the Baccarat Clear crystal Eye votive.
