Kralik gets the credit for these but many companies in the Art Deco era used this application. I believe thin rods were put on a table and then the base glass rolled onto them, or that many rods were put on at once like angel hair pasta....I mean how could one continuous rod be spun on a flaming hot vessel? -that would mean like 800 rotations without losing it to the floor or incredible cramping!
Besides many of these pieces having Kralik shapes we know this factory experimented with textures, including: Frost texture, Crackle, Lava, Oxides, Overshot, pebbled, flashed, iridized to name a few....This gives me an idea for my next post
