This cylinder 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 has made the area famous for it’s creative and high quality art glass. Raw material is placed in a kiln where it’s melted at extreme high temperatures and then molded by highly skilled artisans to their desired shape. Throughout this long history of glassblowing, skilled men endured the tremendous heat to coax beautiful forms from the fire using nothing more than their breath and a few simple tools, roughly the same tools that were used over two thousand years ago.
