Glass Vessel

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

Artisans used a mass of mud and straw fixed around a metal rod to form a core, and built up a vessel by either dipping the core in liquified glass, or by trailing liquid glass over the core. The core was removed after the glass had cooled, and handles, rims and bases were then added. These vessels are characterized by relatively thick walls, bright colors and zigzagging patterns of contrasting colors, and were limited in size to small unguent or scent containers
