Landscape Series Vase Opal Tall
Art Glass Vase
Created by Shawn Messenger
This vase is hand blown using glass powders and chips for the background. The flowers are glass murrini that are created by the artist. Each murrini is made from the cross section of a glass cane that has layers of color with an interior shape of a flower. The murrini pieces are then put into floral compositions, sometimes known as millefiori, then picked up hot onto the glass background. After the murrini have been fused to the surface a layer of clear is added and the piece is blown into the final shape. The floral compositions shown will vary slightly due to the handmade nature of the murrinis.
