Small Vases Medium Vases VasesL Tall Opic Wall Vases

Vases are blown with carefully selected Reichenbach, Kulger and Gaffer imported color glass rods. These rods are approximately one inch in diameter and twelve to fifteen inches long. They come in a variety of colors that allow the glass artisan to blow multiple colors with only one pot of clear glass. A one inch piece of color is broken off the glass rod and two to three different accent color chips of thin color glass are added, pulled and twisted onto the base color creating the swirls that will give the piece the marble effect.  After the initial bubble is blown, the color is encased with several layers of clear glass and blown into the final desired shape. The holes of the wall vases are poked through with a metal punch and fired polished with an oxygen gas torch. The leather strap is then attached to each piece with copper wire which snatches tight on each hole.
