SAFFRON SHIMMERING HIVE VASE
|Available in store:||Check availability|
Artist: The Furnace Glassworks (Lakewood, CO)
The Shimmer Vase collection melds color and texture in two complementary forms. Each hand-crafted and mouth-blown piece features a textural overwrap of glass threading that catches the light and lends touchable depth to the traditionally shiny-smooth medium of glass.
Available in two silhouettes, the Hive and the Cocoon:
The small Hive style is a triangular form accented with two complementary colors.
The large Cocoon form is graced with a wide belly, tapered top and bottom, and three complementary colors.
Each piece is shaped by hand, one at a time; exact colors and texture will vary from piece to piece. We recommend these vases be used for decor purposes only.
• Height: 6"
• Width: 3"
• Depth: 3"
* Slight variations are the nature of handmade items.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Corey Silverman formally trained as a glass artist, earning his BFA with a concentration in glass from Alfred University in New York. Corey worked with several glass studios around the country before settling in Denver, CO in 1999. After much experimentation with glass in all its guises--including slumped forms, casting, cold work, and solid sculpting--he found himself always coming back to the blown form. “I love the immediacy found in making a blown vessel. There’s no questioning what it’s going to look like. You know the end result as you’re putting it away in the annealer. It feels great to have that kind of instant gratification in an art form.”
