84.2 Copper Mesh Glass Vase
84.2 is created by suspending a bubble of coloured glass within a fine copper mesh basket that is then plunged into hot clear glass. Air is blown into the matrix to gently push the coloured glass through the mesh, creating a delicate pillowed form that rests inside the thick outer layer of clear glass. Undulations in the exterior shape are a natural consequence of the fabrication process and differ in each iteration of the procedure. The aperture is flared open and finished, expressing the outline of the copper mesh along the perimeter and allowing the piece to function as a vase.
