Color Pattern (details below) *


Photo above shows colors in the "optic mold" pattern.

The Gold-Burgundy mix is the product of what’s referred to as a “reducing color”, referring to its chemical makeup.  First, it changes to a gold metallic appearance - but only when exposed to a reducing environment.  Then, as it cools overnight, it gradually develops a dark red interior, resulting in an indescribable color combination.  (please note that the result is extremely difficult to photograph accurately!)

Although these are the smallest vases that Bob creates, they still contain all the interesting elements of larger hand-blown glass - the free-flowing nature of the glass, the vivid colors, the movement of the colors.

Of course, they're perfectly functional for displaying flowers or whatever else you may want to use a vase for.  And they're substantial enough that you don't need to worry about breaking it the first time you tap it on something solid.

Example Photos


Float Color Patterns: "Swirled"

The "swirled" pattern is acheived by making small swirls or twists in the glass with a hand tool like the shears.  It creates a nicely random movement of the colors.  Multiple examples are shown below to illustrate not only the effect, but also how varied it can be.

Float Color Patterns: "Optic Mold"

The "optic mold" pattern is acheived by placing the glass briefly into a cast-aluminum, finned "optic mold".  The use of the mold typically results in darker lines of color running through the piece, as well as some varied movement of the color between those lines.  Multiple examples are shown below to illustrate not only the effect, but also how varied it can be.
