Hand carved mouth-blown 24% lead crystal vase depicting a family of elephants crossing the Savannah

The Design

Hand carved 24% lead crystal vase depicting a family of elephants crossing the savannah. The intricate decoration is achieved by using copper wheel and diamond burr carving and etching techniques, creating a tactile cameo in fine detail and relief. Each vase is mouth blown using a layering technique known as cup casing, where even layers of coloured glass are fused together and then blown into the desired form. The artist then carves through the layers of glass to create a cameo effect. Each piece is unique and takes 160 hours to produce. Limited edition of 10, signed & numbered by the artist.

Asprey Moments

THE ASPREY SWAN

This masterpiece of the silversmith's craft was created in the Asprey workshops in the 1980s. Lifelike and exquisitely graceful, it was the pride of the Rosalind and Arthur Gilbert's villa in LA. It has been displayed at London's Victoria & Albert museum since October 2016.
