Carved Glass Perfume Bottles
Handblown glass perfume bottles are deeply carved creating sculptural surfaces, or are carved in low relief with the raised areas highlighted by a dusting of colored glass. An interior layer of colored glass glows softly underneath the carved and frosted surface. The design is created on the surface using a resist, the resist protects that part of the surface during the sandblasting, leaving a raised design. Each piece is made one at a time, the design complementing the shape of the piece.
