Large Golden Waves Amphora Vase
Elegant are the festoons that jewel this piece. The drapes are rendered by threading glass on the object then dragging a tool in one direction through the lines and marvering the threads to flatten into the surface. This vase measures 13"h x 8.75"w. Use our click to enlarge feature to view a cranberry collection of Golden Waves.
Creating pieces of the Golden Waves Collection is a demonstration of talent, innovation and working knowledge that brings a piece to life. Pieces refined as these can only be made by a working team of glass blowers, each inspired and taking their active role to complete the work of art. Festoon designs are achieved when a glass maker adds threads of colored glass to the vessel’s surface (while it is still hot) and then drags a pointed object across the surface to produce the festooned pattern. As our glass blowers present skill, they showcase innovations in glassmaking. To create new selections in the future, 2018 marks the final production of the Golden Waves Collection.
