Blown glass vase, 'Conical Transparency' (Mexico)

The classic contours of this conical vase are enhanced by the beauty of the hand crafted process. By Mexico s Javier and Efr n, the clear vase is crafted with blown glass techniques using recycled glass. The artisan blows through a metal pipe while twirling it with one hand and simultaneously shaping the molten glass at the other end of the tube. Because each piece is handmade, shape and size can vary slightly and tiny bubbles may appear within the glass. This exemplifies the hand-blown technique, making every piece a unique example of blown glass craftsmanship.
