Cameo Carved Art Glass from                            Kelsey Murphy and Robert Bomkamp


When you see the Fairy Frolic vase, you'll simply
"ooh and aah" at the remarkable, intricate details of

this very special cameo carved piece.

Our skilled glassblowers are challenged by the task of creating a blown vase with two layers of glass: rich ruby red inside and opaque white Milk Glass on the outside.
Because some of the Milk Glass will be taken away by the cameo carving process, the thickness of this outer layer is crucial. Because the vase is tall, the glass must be distributed properly on the blowpipe so that there will be proper weight in the bottom of the vase.

Designed by Kelsey Murphy and Robert Bomkamp, the cameo carved Fairy Frolic motif features a lissome fairy in a lush garden of leaves and fantastic mushrooms. The art of cameo carving requires both skill and great dexterity as the Milk Glass is carefully taken away with aluminum oxide crystal under pressure while other areas of the glass are protected by a mask.

Limited to 175 individually numbered pieces, this 9'' Fairy Frolic vase
(ware#8973 65 ) will surely be an heirloom keepsake!
