Purple Battuto Vase
Art Glass Vessel
Hand-blown vase that incorporates cane work and wheel carving. The canes are arranged in a pattern then rolled up onto a blow pipe and shaped into a small cup. The cup is then joined to another blowpipe where a purple cup has been made. Both cups are joined at their lip and reheated until they behave like one piece. Then, an additional gather of glass is made, and the vase is blown into its final shape. Once the vase has cooled, the purple section is faceted using a diamond or stone wheel. Size and pattern will vary.
