SHIPPING within the US is INCLUDED in the listed price. All products in sljglass are created solely by me. This beautiful fused glass Ikebana vase is accented with a dichroic glass butterfly which lays on a bed of black glass, and dichroic sizzle stick that separates the black glass from the red glass. I first etch the butterfly out of a piece of dichroic glass. I then cut and clean the other 4 pieces. It is then ready to be placed into the kiln to be fired at 1450 degrees for 12 hours so all the pieces are fully fused together. This wonderful piece makes a great flower holder, as it contains a pin frog to keep your flowers securely in place. The attached cup holds approximately 2 ounces of water to keep them fresh. I have even rooted cuttings this way. This piece measures 4 inches wide by 4-1/2 inches long and stands a little over 1-1/2 inches tall. It also works well for placing a tea light candle in the opening as well as for holding herbs or incense sticks.
