Phuze Design - Vasez

Orfeo Quagliata's Vasez are truly a labor of love. He cuts each square of glass, drills a hole in the center and hand polishes each piece. He then cold fuses each piece to the next, alternating opaque with clear glass - creating a glass plywood of sorts - and then polishes the whole unit again. I love how the vases appear dense and solid on the bottom and become more transparent as you get to the top of the vase. Orfeo Quagliata is a founding member of Phuze Design.
