Spring Hedgerow Clutch Jug

by Will Shakspeare

  • Category: Glasswork
  • Medium: Hand Blown Glasswork
  • Dimensions: 12 x 10 cms (4.72 x 3.94 ins)

This design is inspired by spring hedgerows in the Somerset levels.

This bowl is made from 24% lead glass, which we melt in our furnace at 1160 degrees. The glass is coated with 3 different coloured glass powders while hot. The parison is then reheated to fuse before we add the stringers and frits to give the piece a unique design. The final piece is then sandblasted when cold to give it a velvety matt finish.

This clutch jug is approximately 12cm high with a diameter of 10cm.
