It's less common these days but I still carve vases once in a while. Sometimes a shape can conjure up really cool design ideas and there are lots of things that can be done to embellish a glass vase and make it "usable art"
Here are vases, some from way back!
Sea Turtle carved vase
Carved turtle seems to rise from the vase as it wraps around with seaweed,bubbles, and flowy water.
14" tall crystal vase. Thickness is blasted away so images rise from the piece.
Tiki carved vases.
A few of my original Tiki designs. Hand shaped vases. Not sure a vase can get much cooler!
Thick, heavy crystal with carving made on the INTERIOR of the piece. Very difficult operating inside the piece.
Thick, heavy crystal. What makes this unique is that the images are carved on the INSIDE.
