Label:
Tiffany achieves the appearance of traditional cameo objects in this blown glass vase. The cameo glass technique normally encases a base form in layers of color that can be cut away to create designs. Here, the vessel’s iridescent surface has been carved and then embellished with incised and colored appliqués.
