Daum Nancy Dahlias Three Colour Cameo Vase
Umber and ruby over a powdered cased glass ground
The manufacturing process was very convoluted. The internal clear vessel was blown and then covered in coloured glass powder, in this case red and burnt orange. This has then been reheated and the next layer of glass has been applied. The outermost two layers coloured glass used for the cameo have been applied. The next stage is to apply a resists and acid cut the design. The high relief elements within the design are then cut and polished.
There are thus five layers of glass within this one vase.
