Loon Glass on Slate Stand

Just posted this on my Etsy store.  I love this one.  I made the glass tiles, called murrini, and fused them all into one large tile.  Very time consuming process, but I like it.  PIcked the hot tile up on the blow pipe and blew it out into this shape.  I then to a diamond wheel on a lathe and ground the surface down to a matte finish.  Made the stand out of a thick slab of slate.

The vase is 3 1/2 inches tall, and with the stand, the whole thing is 6″.

I call it Loon Glass, because I based the colors on the markings of the loon, a very beautiful, quirky bird up here in Maine,with a haunting cry.
