Description

This is a Vortex style, Boro glass contemporary marble made by Bill Grout. It would make a great gift for that someone special or oneself. Valentines gift for him or her.

To make this one I first created a separate core element with gold fumed cane in a switchback pattern which has been placed transverse to the viewing angle. This creates an elusive veil at the upper end transitioning to fill the interior lining with intricate patterns. Green ribbon streamers run down the sides over a blue green rubble backdrop and cobalt blue base. The reverse presents my signature style of swirling lines in tan, deep blue and black colors.

A video of THIS MARBLE can be found here: https://youtu.be/1VTAZC5AQJg

Made with Glass Alchemy, Northstar, and Schott boro glass.

All of my work is properly annealed using a digital ramping controller.

Photo display stand NOT included but we do include a finishing washer for a stand.

1.97" in diameter.

Signed on the edge "WCG 19"

Demo video where I am making a basic vortex marble. Start to finish, see how these are made!

More about us and our story:

Bill has been blowing glass since 1993. In 2002 Rae left the corporate world to be with Bill and pursue her artistic adventure blowing glass and so much more.

Since 2016 Rae has been incorporating metal working, steampunk, dragons and other fantasy themes into the glass art.

Together they live on a small farm that includes orchards, an extensive garden with a green house, Steampunk shop, Torch shop for torch work glass blowing, Bill’s Man Cave equipped with an electronics wing and the Brew house, along with the Sage Cottage Observatory for astrophotography and the vacation getaway Sage Cottage 406 itself where guests can join the journey in comfort and quiet.

The location has wide open views overlooking the Bitterroot Valley of Montana, where together they spread love and harmony, sharing this fantastic journey called life.
