In 2008 Ron collaborated with Fenton Glass to produce Burmese ornaments for a special production they were doing. After creating the ornaments, Ron's furnace still had some Burmese Glass left in it so he created some exclusive vases for RHG gallery.
The design on this vase is a Ruby color overlay on Burmese that was a Spiral Optic then created into a Chain Link design, with Cobalt lip wrap applied to the rim.
Dimensions: Approximately 7 1/2" tall x 5" wide
Burmese Glass is a heat sensitive glass formula. That means the appearance of the glass can be changed by controlling, changing or selectively applying heat. Burmese, for example, after being blown and worked, would be entirely yellow. The pink shading was produced by partially exposing the piece to a higher temperature. The area reheated would remain shaded when the piece cooled. The process of reheating a portion of a piece to get a color change is technically called striking.
