*DISPATCH INFO* - In order to keep safe during the pandemic, please allow extra time for your order to be processed and dispatched. I'm making sure I limit my outings so I'm only posting items once-twice a week.
Due to the pandemic, postal services are still under strain, so please be patient as items can take longer to arrive than usual. This is especially true if ordering from outside the UK. Thank you for your understanding.
Print orders are sent directly to the printers and take about a week from me placing the order with them and them dispatching it. I send orders off within 1 working day of me receiving an order.
A beautiful purple glass 'drop' vase that has been made in a kiln. It has been handmade using a combination of transparent sheet glass and opaque powdered glass in order to give the different colour tones and depths. It would look beautiful as a decorative ornament, table centre piece or to use as a vase with delicate flowers.
Drop vases are called so because of how they are made; the glass blank (which is layered glass that has first been fired to full fuse to combined the layers) is placed over a ring that is suspended on posts in the kiln and the glass melts down, or drops, through the hole in the ring resulting in a small vase. This process must be meticulously watched so that you can visually see whether the glass has dropped far enough and to make sure it doesn't drop too much (resulting in a glass puddle on the floor of the kiln). It is then allowed to cool slowly in the kiln before being taken out.
The vases then need to be cold-worked in order to remove the excess glass rim that is present in this process. The rim is removed and then the edge is gradually grind down to get a smooth edge.
These vases measure around 10cm tall and are 7cm wide at the top, 4cm at the bottom.
Due to the fragile nature of them I will be posting them Royal Mail 1st Class Signed for for domestic orders and Royal Mail Tracked and Signed for international orders.
