Vessel Glass ‘Drop Trail’ By Hayley Gammon
A beautiful transparent and opaque half overlay, a stunning piece of handblown vessel glass art. Handmade with intertwining clear and brightly coloured trails on the outer proportions of the glass. This vessel glass teardrop ornament was developed during a residency at the University of Wolverhampton.
The perfect piece for anyone that enjoys high-quality glass ornaments, or to buy for someone as a special gift.
N.B. The image shown is an example of one in the series. Slight variations in colour and form will occur as every piece is uniquely made just for you. Therefore, no two pieces are ever the same. Hayley personally signs each piece.
