Lavender Whirlpool
Item No. 1901

Price Options:



Molten glass is fused with lavender, white and pale blue colors then blown and spun into a Rondelle disk.

The colors are stretched and swept around the rim of the rondelle creating the effect of peering into the center of a whirlpool.

Our Rondelle's are an adaptation of designs that first appeared in the stained glass windows of cathedrals
during the middle ages.

Molten glass was blown into a crown or bullion then transferred from the hollow blowpipe to a solid punty rod.

The design was flattened by reheating the crown to high temperature in a furnace then spinning it into a flat disk using centrifugal force

Our Rondelle's are produced exactly as they were 680 years ago when French glass makers began producing crown glass for the first time at Rouen.
