* Lakeside Maple Leaf Vase

SKU
3-08016

Introducing Glass Eye Studio's re-imagination of a classic Maple Leaf Vase! What's old is new again in this modernized glass vase formed by blowing a 5 lbs glass bubble into the original depression-era mold.  

For glass connoisseurs familiar with the Bramble design, they'll know it has a great lineage − originally introduced by Westmoreland Glass, then acquired by Fenton Glass, and now the evolution of these vases continues through Glass Eye Studio. 

This classic mold in the talented hands of Glass Eye Studio has been transformed and reimagined in a new color and surface treatment to produce this stunning and significant piece.

An intertwined bramble of Maple Leaves explode over the body of the vase, shimmering in blues, purples, golds and auburns.  Everchanging with the angle of view it paints the movement of leaves in the artist's mind.

The Maple tree symbolizes strength and abundance.  This substantial piece exemplifies these traits standing over 9 inches tall with a 5½" diameter at the mouth and weighing in at 5 pounds.  A robust vessel that can host many large flower arrangements without tipping, and also able to stand alone as a beautiful centerpiece.

Soon to be followed by additional accessory pieces reinvented from Fenton Art Glass molds, the Lakeside Maple Leaf Vase is a desirable gift that will be the center piece of a beautiful and useful suite of vessels.

The Creation Process

  • Artists start with three layers of clear glass 
  • One layer of cobalt glass provides the color 
  • The mold must be at least 600° F so the leaf pattern is defined on the surface of the glass
  • Finished with a glossy, metallic fume

Includes an artist card celebrating Glass Eye Studio's handcrafted artisan approach, and contain ash from the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens. The name Maple Leaf Vase and the date May 2018 are etched in the bottom of the vase.

About The Maker

About Glass Eye Studio

(Seattle, Washington)

Glass Eye Studio was founded in 1978 with the mission to provide young glass artists the opportunity to make a living while they develop their artistic voice. Today, Glass Eye has multiple aspiring artists who work in conjuntion with the core team of talented glass blowers who make the company strong.

Everything sold by Glass Eye Studio is made by hand in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. Because each item is produced individually, there can be slight differences among pieces, giving each its own artisian character.  Each piece that Glass Eye produces includes fragments from Mt. St. Helens 1980 eruption!

So many prominent glass blowers have spent time at Glass Eye Studio, that local artists like to say "All roads lead to "The Eye".
