Root Beer Float Glass Tidepool Clusters

Root Beer Float Glass Tidepool Clusters


Whenever I look at this set of glass barnacle clusters, I think of root beer floats under pretty blue skies. This set is extra special because some of the pieces were actually blown out of amber-colored glass, instead of having the color added later to clear glass in the normal process. This gives an intensity of color that just can't be achieved any other way, and the dark brown looks striking against the ivory and cream that accents it and the various blues that surround it. 

The dimensions of these pieces are: 8" x 7.5" ; 6.25" x 5.75"; 6" x 6"

Each one of these sets is handmade out of blown and kiln-formed glass. I blow the components in a hotshop using molten liquid glass, then allow them to anneal before cutting, grinding, rearranging, and firing them at a very specific temperature. It's an intense and meticulous process but I think it pays off in the great detail these pieces show! Some of the dewdrops even sparkle with dichroic glass, which changes colors depending on the light and angle. These would look lovely displayed on a coffee table or hung on a wall. 

Each piece comes with a Certificate of Authenticity indicating their use in "Ephemera." If you'd like to see more photos of this event, just go to the "events" tab.
