Width is 9.5 This hand blown glass bowl/vase was created using the complex glass cane process. And each cane used in this piece had to be created separately before the piece was made. These highly detailed canes are sometimes commonly known as "twisty canes". Be sure to zoom in and see the fine detail in the design of this piece. Note that all the white streaks are reflections from the photo lights.
Sent along with this piece comes an artist picture and bio. Original - Signed - Hand Blown Glass Art.
My name is Darren, and in 2005 I began my own glassblowing workshop and company called Dirwood Glass. For the past decade, I have been sharing my passion for glass through exhibiting art at museums across the nation, creating and collaborating with companies as prestigious as Ferrari (you can see some of the photos below), as well as creating unique art for individual collectors. The most recent leap in my career, has been creating a mobile glass furnace, which has enabled me to share my passion for the art and process of blowing glass outside of the studio, and into the world.The Ferrari of Glass Is Right Here On. Installation and Ferrari trophies on display at the Cincinnati Art Museum. Dale Chihuly is one of the world's greatest glass makers alive!
Here are some projects I created that were inspired by him.. One of my favorite applications of color use in the blowing process is working with glass canes. All these bowls are made with the techniques of pulling and fusing glass canes to create the patterns. Here are some pictures of my Mom and I pulling some canes.
I really love this process... It's exciting stretching molten glass across the driveway. Depending on the type of canes we pull, sometimes we pull them over 100 feet! It is really important that the glass be at just the right temperature, because if the glass is too hot, it falls to the ground and if its not hot enough it won't pull.
