Red Black and White Sea Squirt Amphora
Art Glass Vase
Created by John Gibbons
This is a hand blown vase in the form of a classical Greek amphora. Gibbons is fascinated with this shape and strives to create it perfectly every time; it is very challenging because of the the black, white, and red colors all wanting to heat up and move in different ways while he is blowing the glass. There are also small windows of clear that create optical windows in the vase. This piece was created without the use of a mold and formed off the end of a five foot metal blowpipe by hand.
