Sprayed On Effect On Modern Vase
« on: August 31, 2006, 11:41:28 AM »
An early collecting purchase which I now think may be low-end (China? East Europe?) glass.  Anyone seen something like this before?  Has no age wear. Interesting finish, though, light blue and irridescence goldish irridescence "sprayed on" in the hot stage (i.e., not after it cooled; it is permanently in glass and doesn't scratch off).  The piece doesn't have the weight, base or top that I associate with high quality glass.  However, I'd love to be incorrect!  
:wink:  :wink: Any help would be appreciated.
Charles.

I wish it were!  The quality of the pix on her website far surpasses mine (in my opinion), in technique and artistry.  Mine has the feel of factory and not studio glass.

Normally a sprayed on irridescent finish such as you describe is achieved by using sprayed on stannous (tin) chloride, which can react with certain colours to give different irridescent hues.
