    I also love these!!! Capri is one of the best Bang's latest series (well, in fact theywere the three famous one: Capri, Groen and Opaline). The large one I've also got and is truly amazing, isn't it?

    Beautiful. What do you mean with "optically blown"? Can you show this?
  5. vlkma238412 vlkma238412, 5 years ago
    cobaltcobold hope this helps tried to use google translate

    OPTICAL BLOWN glass The glass is placed in a mold with for example ribs, the "optics form", then the glass is blown in a mold or free-blown, whereby a difference in wall thickness, and thus, in the color is visible on the outside: the optical effect, even at clear glass it effect remains visible .

    when you feel the large one on the outside you can feel "ribs"going down verticaly and it these "ribs"the color slighty divers its a great effect when you walk past or slightly turn it around ( when i count correctly there are 4 ribs going down from the top to the bottom I feel it makes it look slimmer its a very faint effect tried to get it on photo not yet succeeded) some of the capri serie have this ( you can slightly see it in this photo the large one and the one on the right have it) the other 2 i have feel complettely smooth on the outside and have no visual effect when you turn them.

    In the netherlands A.Copier used this alot this is a Copier example in clear glass

    hope this all helped

    @vlkma238412. Thank you. I was never quite sure how to understand this term. Now I know better. I have an optical vase bei Eric Jachmann for WMF, inspired by Bang, I suppose, with the ribs inside. I already wanted to present it, but I am not so satisfied with my pictures. Thank you for the wonderful link to the Danish glassmuseum. All these wonderful designs by Per Lütken. It's a very useful site, exemplary, I would say.
