Drizzle Vases

These gorgeous handblown glass vases are made by myself, Catriona R. MacKenzie. I have spent the last 12 years perfecting my glassblowing skills, and each one of my pieces is lovingly made. They are available in lots of stunning transparent colours.
I blow each vase by hand in the studio, so they are all individual and unique. They are lovely on their own, or in a group.
Each vase is cooled down in a kiln overnight and given a ground base. It is then decorated with a resist and a frosted drizzle design is sandblasted onto the exterior. The resist is then removed, and a protective solution is rubbed into the surface to repel dust and grease marks.

No two are the same, making it a truly original gift. They are roughly 6.5 inches tall (they vary due to being a handmade product) and each one comes in its very own gift-box made from Eco-friendly cardboard, so that’s gifts sorted!!

NB – Not suitable for dishwashers!

To keep surface clean, dust with a glass-cleaner, and rub a tiny amount of vaseline/baby oil into the surface.
