||Cobalt Fountain Geode|
Item No. 1418
A gather of molten glass is hand sculpted and fumed with a translucent blue veil.
A second gather of clear is applied over the first which is also fumed with a translucent veil.
A hollow air space is then inserted into the middle of the fountain simulating a splash before casing the design in crystal clear glass.
This treatment creates the effect of a fountain erupting
from the center of the design.
Fountains were originally connected to springs or aqueducts and were used for bathing or drinking water.
Among all the inventions of the ancient world, fountains may be the defining feature that signaled a cultures advance into civilization.
"Every time I receive one of these, it makes me glad all over again that we moved to you guys for our commemorative pieces."
