Teak and Blown Glass Hanging Vase
Artisan-made in Indonesia, molten glass is poured over a reclaimed teak wood root to create this breathtaking sculpture. The glass flows over the curves of the wood, looking as if it's frozen in time. Each vessel is made to fit a specific root, and the pairs will all be one-of-a-kind. Create your own eco-chic display by filling the glass with other natural materials such as foliage, sand, pebbles, and even water. The roots come equipped with inset wall hanging hardware.

Our recycled glass is melted at around 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. Our artisan then blows the glass onto the wooden roots at around 960-1000 degrees Fahrenheit. The roots are often burnt during this process, and as a result there may be some black residue- leaving a charred appearance in some areas. Each wood piece is then washed and treated, but this heat effect sometimes goes a bit deeper in the wood which can be expected, and may rub off when handled.
