A gather of clear molten glass is fused with virgin white powder before applying a layer of transparent jade chips.

A gather of clear casing glass is applied, sheared and twisted creating the central design element.

More casing glass is applied, furnace heated and pulled stretching the interior elements into a translucent watery vortex.

Whirlpools can be very strong, like the ones below Niagara Falls, producing a downdraft called a vortex.

The worlds five strongest vortexes are in Norway which reach speeds of 23 mph.

In 1980, a whirlpool was created on Lake Peigneur in New Iberia, Louisiana, caused by a drilling mishap.

A drill broke through the roof of a salt mine which turned the lake into a gigantic drain pulling boats and semi-trailers into the resulting vortex.
