Arc en ciel is the french word for rainbow. The object is also shaped like ark, like Noah's ark. The rainbow traditionally symbolises hope. This object symbolises the hope we will be able to leave the bad behind and move into a more positive future.
This oblong object is built of hundreds of pieces of glass in rainbow colours. The object is fired to a shine on the inside. The rim is handpolished to a gloss. The outside is handgrinded to a satin shine.
Slight irregularities in the gloss are to be expected in the way this glass was built.
