This piece includes Fuming – a process where fine (.999 pure) silver is held into a high oxidizing flame to release “fumes”. These fumes are captured by molten glass using different techniques to create awesome color change effects.
Silver gives a yellow hue to most transparent glass and changes color with use. Dark glass will reflect the silver as colors – Some will intensify – others/opaque colors such as black – will not appear to change as they are already very dark. the silver creates a sort of “oil in water” look on these pieces.
