Nice work Ed,
The tops don't have to be cut off if you drop the vase onto a nice wide base and fuse them together all at the same time.
Takes making a few duds to get it all perfectly done. :lol:
And all you thought you had to do was perfect the timing and temperature of the drop?
Don't forget the vase will not then go back through the ring so escape planning is required.

Thanks Kevin. Yeah, some we keep the tops on, others cut off. We like breaking, re-arranging and remelting the cut off pieces to make very similar sibling pieces or sets. I've made a few using an escape plan. And a few that couldn't escape - good-bye dear ring. :(
