A full set of antique blue lens vases


I just made a full set of lens vases in the color we call antique blue. Antique blue contains ultramarine pigment – the only pigment we use in any of our patinas – in a copper nitrate base. Ultramarine pigment was once derived from grinding up lapis lazuli, and the look of the patina – especially in this set of vases – reflects that origin. This set of vases is on its way to Mowen Solinsky Gallery.
