I love this glass vase! The colors are great together.
This glass vase looks great in a window with the light shining through it. Put your favorite flowers in it, too. I think it would really sparkle if you put a candle inside.
I am going to make a larger one next. I already made a sea green glass vase where the glass was 12″ square (I used two 10″ square pieces of glass for the vase in this blog) and then fused to another piece turned 90 degrees. I put two layers of thin fire paper around the cone (floral former) mold and then another small piece that fit over the top of the mold. However, I left the kiln soak too long at the draping stage and the glass hugged on to the mold. I put the whole thing in cold water to soak and then I tried soaking it in hot water. Nothing was working. I waited for my husband to come home to see what he could do. He gently used a hammer and a screwdriver, but ended up breaking a couple of the triangles off the top of the glass vase 😦 It was a cool vase, which is why I want to try it again. Hopefully, the last part won’t happen again!
It is really cool how glass drapes. Every glass vase turns out different.
