Venice is host to some of the most spectacular glass factories in the world. A place where exquisite mouth-blown pieces are created every single day. I found new respect for this industry when I visited one such factory and saw how they artistically breathe life and form into a blob of molten glass. Featured here is the Barbara Carafe Vase, a beautiful mouth-blown piece with modern sensibilities. A colored crystal ball doubles as a seal and a tactile magic ball to the carafe.
The crystal ball deliberately features a cut (grind-ed) surface, which stops it from rolling-off. If you choose to use this piece as a vase, then place the crystal ball under the carafe in its little cubby – just a nice splash of color.
