Bathory Vase

The Handle with Care glass collection is the first output of the Flowers for Slovakia platform, that I was selected to take part in 2011.
Each object presents a Slovak legend translated into glass.
Bathory Vase is about a Countess of Cachtice Castle became known as ‘The Blood Countess’. Even the slightest mistake made by one of her chambermaids was met with the most painful punishment. Once blood splashed on the countess’s arm; suddenly she thought that she had discovered the secret of eternal youth.According to the legend, she bathed in the blood of 300 virgins.
