This Small Anemone Vase is hand blown glass, inspired by the patterns and movements of the ocean. It is comprised of amethyst and cobalt murrine that create a magnifying effect in which the pattern undulates when viewed. The neck of the vase is widened and spun to make the mouth of the vase undulate. Set it near a window and watch as sunlight streaming through makes this vase even more beautiful. It is an original work of art.

It measures about 8" in height and 6" in diameter.
The pattern in this blown glass vase is achieved by cutting small glass rods and tiles, called murrine, and arranging them in a pattern, then fusing them together in a 2100 degree kiln. A blow pipe is then rolled along the edge of the glass to form a cylinder. The bottom of the cylinder is closed, which creates a bubble, allowing the glass to then be blown and shaped into the vase.
