Portfolio bowl - Fractured light blooming
Colours dance on the table when this bowl is placed in the light. Textured on the inside, this garden of delight is as fun to touch as it is to look at. Fresh and elegant, this bowl is perfect for serving all your favourite foods - or just to display and enjoy.
You can read 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: 10.5" (2.25" deep)
How it was created: The "Fractured light garden" bowl was created by placing hundreds of small pieces of transparent glass on a clear circile of glass. The firing time was a little shorter than a full fuse in order to create the texture on the inside. The piece was then slumped in a round bowl mold. This piece was in the kiln for two days.
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.
