Laura de Santillana

1 piece(s) in the gallery

Laura de Santillana's Bambu vases are produced in a limited edition of 300 per year, per color, in thirty-one different colors. Every piece is mouth blown using traditional techniques in Murano, Italy. The colors are produced by mixing the color into the silicon material, then boiling it to 5,000 degrees, overnight. In the morning the process of blowing begins. The opaque look is given by rubbing a wet newspaper paper onto the glass, when it has cooled slightly. The final color will vary according to the specific batch of raw material, and the blowing process.

How to care for Bambu vases: pass a small Vaseline soaked cloth over the entire surface. Let sit for one hour and then remove any excess with a soft dry cloth. Repeat approximately every six months. This will restore the warmth of the vases.
Available in 31 colors.
Each vase is approximately 21 inches tall.
