Amphora Perfume Bottle by Bernard Stonor

This amphora shaped perfume in cobalt blue with applied forget me nots is not made in the conventional way of blowing it uses the ancient technique of core work which is made by applying molten glass to a rod with mud or clay wrapped around the end. The glass is drizzled on like honey, then rolled on a marble slab or stainless steel bench to smooth and fuse the glass together. It is heated and rolled several times then let to cool before sliding  off the rod.finally using a metal tool the mud or clay is picked out hopefully not breaking the piece. Bernard Stonor is one of a handful of artists world wide to make such pieces.
