Red Glass Basket Weave Vase

Red Fused Glass Basket Weave Vase

 

I’ve made fused glass basket weave vases similar to this one, using black and red iridized glass, and blue and orange OpalArt glass, etc.  I made a much larger red iridized glass, using 12 inch by 1/2 inch strips, but I had trouble getting it off the ceramic cone mold and ended up breaking a couple of end pieces off.  I gave it to my mother-in-law and she is thoroughly enjoying it.

For this fused glass vase, I used 9 inch by 1/2 inch strips and used my stainless steel cone mold.  The glass vase lifts right off the stainless steel cone molds.  I love these molds, because I don’t have to use thin fire shelf paper and any vase lifts right off.  I wish they made these stainless steel molds in taller sizes :)

    Gorgeous use of color and movement – it reminds me of a flickering flame!

    I love the way the colors seem to melt into each other. You could also take the same weave design and make a glass pie lol. Great work though! Can’t wait to see more.

      Hi Steuben,

      Actually, I have made a bowl with this basket weave design! It was my first project using this design. The basket weave design was a red opal and the base of the bowl was black. It looked like a cherry pie!
