Portfolio Bowl - Jellyfish school
A school of delicate, floating jellyfish on a white glass serving bowl. Perfect for serving or just to admire and enjoy.
I suggest that you wash all Glass by Charis by hand. It is food safe.
Putting it in the microwave is not recommended.
Size: 10" (2"deep)
How it was created: This is a screen-melt plate. With a foundation of white glass topped by a layer of clear glass on the kiln shelf, I arranged multi-coloured pieces of glass on a screen poised above and let them melt through to the layers of glass below. Firing the glass takes over thirteen hours. Another twelve hours is required for the glass to cool enough to be trimmed into the shape of the serving bowl. The glass was then fired three more times, adding little pieces for the water bubbles and correcting the shapes. The fused glass then went into a mold and was fired for the fifth time. The whole process took 5 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.
