Amber Tear

Amber Tear
Sculptural Vessel
size: 21.5″ x 12″ x 4″

 

Amber Tear is a piece that was made by our glassblowing team under the tutelage of a visiting artist.  This was Patrick’s first cross-axis piece.

Cane is a color application where a thin rod of glass is made from various glass rods of different colors to form a design.  Cane ranges from simple to complex.  A simple cane is basically a cylinder of colored glass coated with clear glass.  There is also a cased cane where the clear is coated with color.  Then with a complex cane, there are multiple designs, really only limited by the creator’s skill and imagination.

X-axis pieces are made when a small hole is made in the side of the piece to rotate the design from vertical to horizontal.  The piece is transferred from one pipe to a new blowpipe which is attached to the hole and then the piece is shaped and formed from there to its final product.
