This truly awesome, unnamed flower and oil pair was made by artist @midnightglass as a custom order for a friend, so it is not currently available. Keep an eye out on the Instagram glass scene for any chance that this lucky collector parts with it.
The line work employed in creating this piece is called Reticello, a technique @midnightglass has been utilizing for about six months. The style comes from very early glass artists in Italy, and is highly admired by collectors and artists alike. Austin (@midnightglass) has a love for glass and the scene surrounding it. His attitude towards glass is a positive and progressive one.

The big flower piece is, well, big! It’s around 18 inches tall, while the oil piece sits at about half that size. Both pieces are hand spun—no lathe was used to make these beauties.
Austin started blowing glass in 2011, inspired by the urgings of a family member, as well as a personal passion for cannabis. You can find other work by @midnightglass through Peace of Mind Bend, Torched Illusions and through his Instagram account.
