    A very pretty pair of Kralik Bambus vases. These have polished pontils and rims. These are my first of this example and I'm amazed at the weight (1.5kg each). I have some Kralik Bambus 'cut rim' pieces, which are generally thin glass and light, but these are substantial and the bambus patterning is raised and very textural, I just love them.

    My latest favourite acquisition. Stand 11" (28cm) high.

    14. jericho jericho, 5 years ago
      Oh, Im just reminded by the flaw comment. I meant to document how many bambus color combinations there are (red is made several different ways for example). So in your example Phil you can safely say that your red bambus is made with Yellow cased in red. I'm fairly certain the whole process was hand gathered, stretched and tooled, and using two to three colors created a demension that is origenal to Kralik from this period.

      P.s. there is a way to determine rarity based on decor, base color, shape and finish (surface treatment). the glass is something like cooking too-
    15. jericho jericho, 5 years ago
      It changes color depending on the timing (how long it took in the making)
    16. philmac51 philmac51, 5 years ago
      In a similar way that glazes change in a kiln I'm guessing - time and chemical reaction to temperature etc...?
    17. ozmarty ozmarty, 5 years ago
      And like cooking these are Delicious !!!
    18. welzebub, 5 years ago
      Colors in glass are generally formed through the addition of a element like Nickel, Cobalt, Cadmium, Selinium, Chromium, etc...... in various amounts or in a combination of those materials. As an example, small amounts of Nickel can be used to clarify clear glass, but large amounts of Nickel can be used to create a black glass.

      In some cases the colors are created by a process referred to as "heat striking. As an example of that, if you add 24 kt gold to a batch of glass and produce an item with it, the resultant glass is clear. If you let it cool, and then reintroduce it to an oven and take it up to a temp just above 1000 degrees F. then the gold in the glass will cause the object to turn deep red.

      Yes Marty... I wanna plant them and harvest a dozen next year!!!
    20. philmac51 philmac51, 5 years ago
