84.2

Copper Mesh Glass Vase

glass

84.2 is created by suspending a bubble of white or 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 white or coloured glass through the mesh, creating a delicate pillowed form that rests inside the thick outer layer of clear glass. Undulationsin the exterior shape are a natural consequence of the fabrication process and differ in each iteration of the procedure. The aperture is flared open, cut and finished, allowing the piece to function as a vase, and expressing the unique and specific outline of the copper mesh along the perimeter.
