Landscape Series Vase Tangerine
Art Glass Vase
Created by Shawn Messenger
The vase is hand blown using a background of glass powders and chips with flowers made from glass murrini 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 put into floral compositions, sometimes known as millefiori, then picked up hot onto the glass background. After the millefiori has been fused to the surface, a layer of clear glass is added and the piece is blown into the final shape. Both sides of the vase features its own floral composition, with multiple layers of flowers, adding to the depth of the piece. The piece is signed by the artist and has floral compositions which will vary slightly making each piece unique.
