This is a of one-of-a-kind beautiful, abstract, fused glass art bowl. This sculptural bowl does not have a flat bottom so which creates movement when touched but is perfectly balanced for display. This bowl was made with a clear glass base and glass powders in white and cream. The design is hand-created and no two are the same. Decorative use. Hand wash only.
Dimensions: 7.75 in wide x 3.5 in tall
About the process. After firing to get the desired design, the bowl was made using what is called a 'drop out' vessel. It is made by placing a fused glass blank over a flat mold (which has a hole in the center) and firing it in a kiln. The glass slumps down through the hole to create the bowl form. This process needs to be closely monitored to get the desired shape. Once cooled, the bowl is cut off from the glass ring left behind in the process, and the edges are carefully ground and polished.
