"Le Cage Aux Folles" Cameo Carved Vase in Topaz Cased in Emerald
Design by Kelsey Murphy and Robert Bomkamp.
The 7-1/4" Le Cage Aux Folles cameo carved Vase is handcrafted in Topaz cased in Emerald. This vase is limited to 75 pieces.
The design is by cameo artists Kelsey Murphy and Robert Bomkamp. Cameo carving is a painstaking process. After the glass has been annealed, a special mask is taped to the surface of the glass. Using an advanced "vignetting" technique, each piece is carefully sandcarved, by hand, using aluminum oxide crystals under pressure to take away some of the surface. Great individual skill and experience are needed to control this operation, as many distinct stages of successive cameo carving are required to create the remarkable depth and the intricate details.
