Description: **Originally listed for 150. United States, Santa Monica, CA, 1988. A beautiful limited edition Correia freehand blown glass vase of an ovoid shape with an internal translucent burgundy teardrop shaped cavity extending from the narrow opening, surrounded by translucent glass that is garnet etched with a basket-weave motif along the sides, this pattern elegantly interrupted by an oval translucent section on each side. The base is etched with the following "Correia - 1988 - L.E. EVELXR 38/250". According to the Correia Art Glass company, "The skilled artisans for Correia Art Glass use the freehand blowing techniques and tools of centuries past while applying new technology that produces superior results. Liquid glass, pulled from the furnaces 2600 degree Fahrenheit inferno on to long stainless steel pipes, is blown and twirled and worked in an artful silent ballet of hot glass applied to hot glass. The molten magic of fire transforming fine sand from the American Southwest into glass is an entirely handmade process using our own formulas of minerals and precious metals. The result is art achieved through color, shape and light. Designs are garnet-etched into the surface of the glass, never painted on."
