This blown glass vase by John Gibbons is 22 inches tall, 6 inches wide and 3.25 inches deep. He developed the “Vertigo Series” after realizing the optical and dizzying effects that putting canes of glass in a vase can have. Walking past the vase and looking at it really brings this movement to life. It’s called moire effect and it is fun to play with.
John first pulls soup can sized blobs of black glass into pencil thick canes that stretch across the room up to 30 feet long! The rods are then cut into 4 inch lengths and laid side by side on a ceramic kiln shelf. They are then heated, squeezed together and rolled up on to a molten bubble on the end of a blow pipe and blown and shaped into a vase.
This item comes with free shipping, as does most of my glass.
