This bucket shaped vase was handmade in Poland. Poland is widely recognized as one of the premier glass making areas in the world. Hand-Mouth-blown is the basic method used by Polish artists which have made the area famous for its creative and high quality art glass. Raw material sourced produced in Poland is placed in a kiln where it is melted at extreme high temperatures and then moulded by highly skilled artisans to their desired shape. Throughout this long history of glass blowing, skilled men endured the tremendous heat to coax beautiful forms from the fire using nothing more than their breath and a few simple tools They worked hard to polish their skills to uniformity and precision but even so each creation was as individual as the maker.
