Opaque Blue and White Glass Vase, White Star
Click on the Shop on Etsy button to visit my shop there. You will see all of my available stock.
This is a blue vase. It is a hand blown glass vase blown by me. It is made up of blue glass with white glass mixed in which gives it an opaque blue-white color. The white is especially prominent at the top of the vase and in the neck and dissipates towards the bottom. It contains a small blue glass Murrine chip (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murrine) containing a white star against a blue background melted onto the vase surface. It is one of my favorite glass pieces. Its dimensions are: 6.5″ in height; 1″ wide at the mouth; 4” wide at the shoulder (the widest part of the vase); and 2.5″ wide at the base. Although the star in the close up pictures appears blue, it is actually a white star sitting on a blue background. Note: Please be aware that any extraneous marks in the pictures (white or otherwise) may be due to light reflections, shadows, and/or possibly dust particles and may NOT necessarily be a part of the glass itself.

I create unique hand-blown glass vessels and artwork from molten glass and want to share them with you! In 2009, after having had obtained both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in molecular biology and after having worked in the field (with DNA) for 18+ years, I decided to take up glass blowing.
I was attracted to the art of glass blowing and to the beautifully colored things that one could make. I started taking classes and private lessons with private instructors and eventually was able to create glass vessels such as bowls, vases, and cups in various colors and designs as well as beautiful glass art starting from molten glass that is kept at 2100 degrees F. As a result, I amassed a fairly large collection of over 180 pieces of glass.
So I decided to share them with the public by selling them. I opened up “Elliott Glass Art” which is an online business. I have a personal web site that you are welcome to visit, a Facebook page and this Etsy shop that I have created.
So as not to totally forget my previous career in molecular biology, I will be undertaking an effort to construct the DNA molecule in glass, and specifically a gene that I sequenced in my previous career. Of course, I will continue to make vessels of bigger and more elaborate quality, and I want very much, to share them all with you.
