volcano series

VOLCANO / epiphany studios

The volcano series is yet another interpretation of our understanding of glass as a molten material. While similar in concept to our platters and trumpet vases, the volcanoes speak more about the fluid nature of glass. This series is defined by the graceful wave of the lip, the placement of the exterior clear bitwork around the bowl of the piece, and the hot sculpted glass ribbons that curl tantalizingly off the body into a base.

Another noteworthy aspect of this series is the exterior frosting that is done after the piece has cooled to room temperature. The frosting captures and reflects the lush transparent body and lip colors. This process is done with superior quality materials, so as to achieve a satiny smooth finish, which is less porous to fingerprints. The frosting process takes more time than any other aspect in the making of a piece, and requires specialized, expensive equipment.
