Black Gourd 0862
Art Glass Sculpture
This gourd is made by rolling clear glass in fine black glass frit, then blowing and shaping it. The stem is made by rolling clear glass in fine amber frit, which is applied to the gourd while it is molten hot. After the piece has cooled overnight, it is sandblasted to achieve a matte finish. As no molds are used, each piece will vary slightly in size.
