Green, white and orange glass tulip vase in the colours of Ireland – contemporary glassware hand made in Ireland by Keith Sheppard Glass Artistry
High Quality ‘Bullseye’ architectural fused glass vase, or vessel, made in the colours of Ireland.
- The vessel comes in with two different internal colours - green or orange and is 180mm tall.
- This product comes in a ruby red presentation box made with 280gm weight card.
The vessel is made using the ‘drop out’ method of production. A selection of sheet glass is cut and stacked together forming a block of glass.
The design element is incorporated into the block of glass using different coloured opal glass. The block of glass is ‘dammed’ in the kiln, using kiln furniture and fibre paper to ensure the block of glass retains its shape and can be easily removed from the kiln.
The kiln is then fired at full fuse temperature and this process takes approximately 36 hours.
Once cooled the block of glass is cleaned and ‘cold worked’ prior to the second stage firing in the kiln.
The block of glass is then suspended in the kiln on ceramic pillars and a circular former.
The glass is re-fired and gravity forces the glass through the ceramic former to produce the vessel.
Once cooled the original glass block is removed with a diamond saw and then ‘cold worked’, grinding and polishing.
Each vessel is unique in its colourations, bespoke craftsmanship and attention to detail which elevates its desirability. Although a lovely piece of glass art in its own right it’s also a functional vase.
- Clean with warm soapy water and dry immediately.
- NO dishwasher use.
- This product is designed and produced in Ireland, using materials sourced in Ireland.
- Dimensions: H = 18cm (approximately)
