The vase, the vase, the vase is on fire

I’m not sure why, but ever since I glued the first pieces down on this vase, I’ve been super jazzed about it.

The blue pieces were part of a box of mystery scraps I picked up at the glass store. When I got the box home and started rooting through it, I was immediately drawn to these curved blue strips. I thought they were very elegant.

The orange that I paired it with was originally purchased for one of my lazy Susan projects, but it didn’t fit into the colour scheme as I had hoped, so it was available for other projects… like this one! And boy am I glad, because I’m digging the blue / orange combo.

And then there’s the textured clear glass. I like how it kind of gives the piece a bit of shimmer. It’s also the first time I’ve thought to put the textured side facing out. (Seems a bit obvious now that I think about it. Not sure why it didn’t dawn on me sooner.)

It’s funny, I don’t usually have a tough time letting go of my mosaics (I’m actually pretty psyched when one finds a new home), but occasionally there’s one that I have a hard time parting with. This is one of those times.

Here you can kinda see the textured glass

Check out all four sides!
