Underground Art

It takes the earth eons to form a stalagmite, as minerals slowly build up into tall ribbons of swirling, sparkling color. It takes glass artist Jim Loewer much less time to create his take on the stalagmite, but the result is no less spectacular. Each one is handmade from borosilicate glass, flowing with vibrant, marbleized colors. The delicate pieces are an eye-catching way to display individual blooms or wildflowers, or to simply display on its own. Handmade in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Comments about STALAGMITE BUD VASE:

The "life sized" photo they show on the web site makes the vase appear to be much larger then it actually is. I was pretty disapointed when it arrived in the mail.

    This lovely vase is a perfect gift for a vase-collector. Because it is unusual, it is a "one of a kind" addition to her collection.
