The 2x Glass Vases, by Assembly Design, almost look as if they have ice crystals forming on the inside and outside of the vases. The vases explore master techniques by way of glass blowing to get the final results where each one is completely unique.

The shards of broken glass are incorporated into the freeform glass bubble which is mouth blown. It then goes through a process of being heated and hand molded over and over again. The shards then become integrated into the vase making them become sculptural.
