Mouthblown, hand finished small glass vase. Produced by Tim Casey, from Nancledra near Penzance.
Tim is one of a very few number of people in England making stem ware or functional tableware in glass completely by hand. It takes two people to make every piece, working in unison with molten glass to produce each finished glass. Tim and his wife Carole work with a special high grade glass; the materials come from Sweden and the finished quality is very similar to lead crystal, with a brightness and clarity developed to imitate 24% lead glass. Each item carries colour in rims or in the body of the work, and the light play with the clear glass sections is subtly enhanced by the shaping of the insides of the glasses to produce an elegant, clean beauty with the delight of colour to enhance the work.
As each and every piece of Tim’s glassware is mouthblown and made to order, your delivery may take 3-4 weeks to reach you. If your requirement is urgent, please do get in touch with us by email prior to placing your order – we’ll always do our best to help!
