Details

  • Custom borosilicate milli pull technique by Wooking
  • Wooking used a dark color palette with hints of light and color
  • Silver reduction on the surface, with the top layer is cut or carved away, revealing the colors underneath
  • Vela assembled the entire piece and put a signature turbo perk fixed in the tube for the best hit posible
  • Battuto process that creates cuts and facets on the milli sections
  • Base color changes color depending on what light it's in: Green under LED light, Purple under CFL light and Blue under daylight

If you look closely at the piece you realize the entire thing has cuts and facets on the milli sections. The Battuto process means that each cut was done by hand on an engraving wheel. The process starts with a diamond engraving wheel where an initial cut starts, and then a series of finer wheels polishing each cut one at a time until the piece is ready to fire polish. The entire process from start to finish takes about a week of solid work from both glass artists.

Inspiration / Artist's Statement

"This piece is Artifact #1. We wanted to make a piece that felt like it could have been dug up on an archeological dig. It’s timeless and has clean simple lines in addition to having a complicated carving process, giving the impression that it is from another time period. Not many artists have the tools or the skill set to make a piece like this and we’re honored to have it available in the Art of Glass, Glass Gallery."
