Aurora Swirl

Art Glass Perfume Bottle

Created by Mary Angus
Rated 5 based on 2 customer reviews
The artist creates exquisite hand blown glass perfume bottles with graceful forms and soft colors. The swirl perfume bottles are deeply carved with sculptural surfaces, with the raised areas highlighted by a dusting of colored glass. In each piece an interior layer of colored glass glows softly underneath the surface.

As the molten glass is blown and shaped, the surface of the final gather is dusted with a fine layer of powdered colored glass. The heat involved in the blowing process fuses the powdered glass to the gather's surface.

After the blown piece has been formed and then cooled, a resist is used to create a pattern on the surface of the piece. Each piece is designed individually, the pattern complementing the form of the piece. Areas unprotected by the resist material are then carved away by sandblasting the surface with an abrasive. As a final step, each piece is acid etched and perfume bottles are hand-fit with a teardrop shaped, clear glass stopper.
