medium deep aegean enamel glass vase


medium vase with a medley of blues and greens . there is no greater joy than diving off a boat into a deep sea. the colour changes as the light starts to disappear changes everything whilst nothing has changed. I know some people hate swimming in deep water. if you are one of them then don’t let my inspiration put you off. but enjoy the view without the fear in this medium glass and enamel vase 11cm x 12cm

All vases are supplied with a sample of museum gel which will secure the vase to your shelf.

these delicate little vases are made using ceramic doughnuts. a flat blank is fired with the design in place. The blank is then suspended over a doughnut of bisque clay and the kiln works it’s magic. the three photographs below show you a very quickly taken shot of a vase dropping. this all happens at over 700 degrees and takes nearly three hours to achieve. and that’s after 5 hours to get to temperature and another 16 hours to cool down! 

these vases take  time to make as one fault in the glass and it won’t drop smoothly to form the vase.

opening the kiln after the drop is an exciting moment as you can see how the pattern has reformed itself after dropping through the aperture in the bisque doughnut.
