Bottle Stopper, Yellowstone, Blown Glass Top with Black Silicone Base
This would make a nice gift for someone special or oneself and comes in one of our Aspen Hot Glass gift boxes.
I made, ( hand-blown glass torchwork), the top of this bottle stopper using Italian soft glass. I first made a ribbon cane using ivory glass and laced it with silver then created the lollypop shaped top using ivory glass and melted the ribbon cane in. The silver reacts with the ivory glass creating these lovely shapes and colors that remind me of Yellowstone Park, a place I have spent a lot a time in and grew up about 80 miles away from.
After the glass top was annealed for 14 hours I attached a stainless steel mandrel and fastened it to a food-grade silicone base.
This is about 3.71" long x 1.56" wide at the glass top and the silicone base tapers down to about 0.36"
I signed and dated the glass RaeG20 with a titanium pen
Thank you for supporting out glass blowing business and I hope you have a fun and wonderful day,
