Persian Green Spun Glass Tree, Large
For this collaboration series I teamed up with Mathew Urban of Furnace Urbini in Bloomington, IL. Mathew was my grad instructor in the glass blowing program at ISU back in 2005. He has mastered the Venetian style of glassblowing in his 24 years of experience. This design mixes a Venetian style goblet foot with my spun glass tree design. The beautiful transparent green color comes from his special reserve of Blenko glass cullet (leftover glass from their production lines). These stand 8-9 inches tall. There are only 100 of these available.
Please note there are 5 small punty marks on the bottom of each tree from the 5-point punty (steel handle) used to create them. These may appear as a small 'chip'.
