Kiva Ford's Tiny Glass


Kiva Ford's "day job" according to This is Colossal, is making custom lab glass for scientists needing unique glass equipment. Here's the Colossal description:

Glass artist Kiva Ford draws from his vast experience in scientific glassblowing to create perfect miniatures of wine glasses, beakers, and ribbon-striped vases, some scarcely an inch tall. A member of the American Scientific Glassblowers Society, Kiva creates instruments for scientists who require one-of-a-kind designs for various experiments. The same techniques and tools used for scientific equipment also apply to his artistic practice including the miniature works you see here, as well as larger sculptures, and ornate drinkware.

Most of it is too small for bjds (most of it is 1/6 scale or smaller), but the perfume bottles are human scale and gorgeous. The example above is 5 and 1/8 inches tall.
