From the Manufacturer:
Born of Fire
Our artistic process is steeped in the beauty and mystery of glass from start to finish. We begin by applying immense heat to
a mixture of sand to create molten glass. Each individual piece starts as a precise amount of glass on the end of a blowpipe or
rod. The piece takes shape as the artist manipulates the glass with light but precise touches. After a quick fire-polish, the piece is
slowly brought to room temperature over a period of days. Some pieces are finished using diamond wheel grinders and
Each piece of glass shown is created by our artists here in our Seattle, Washington studio and contains ash from the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens.
A lighted base with adapter is available separately.
