Furnace Glass Vases

Connie and I spent Saturday afternoon trying out a new furnace glass project at Sonoran Glass Art Academy. We made two vases each.

Our mission was to try this adventure and see whether it would fit in with our annual Blow Your Own Ball
party.

Although making vases turned out to be too time-intensive for our large group in November, Connie and I had a grand time. I picked up my vases yesterday and am so tickled with the results.

I chose a classic shape with a twisted spiral for the first vase. Although you could choose a variety of different colors, I opted for green for both projects.

My second vase was a simple cylindrical shape.

Just lovely. That is a very cool idea and the link to the Blow Your Own Ball party had some great pictures too. I'm going to have to search for an opportunity to try out glass blowing in my area. Thanks for the inspiration!
