Portfolio Bowl - A fall forest
Rich reds, oranges and yellows drift over the large ripples of deep transparent green, blanketing the forest in nature's splendour. This glorious serving bowl is perfect for the most special occasion or on display everyday bringing the blooming colours of the meadow inside.
You can read more about my inspiration for this piece in my blog here.
I suggest that you wash all Glass by Charis by hand. It is food safe.
Putting this piece in the microwave is not recommended.
Size: 9.5" (2.125" deep)
How it was created: The "Fall in the forest" serving bowl was created by laying fused pieces from a failed project on top of a deep green transparent circle of glass. I added more crushed glass on top. It was then fired at full fuse temperatures. The fused piece was put in a bowl mold and fired for another day.
My process often adds bubbles in the glass and no piece is perfectly round or square, adding to its appeal.
Fusing glass, often in several layers, results in items that may seem surprisingly heavy when first unpacked.
