Bowl - Passion and joy
Eight colours of glass frit create an exuberant declaration of passion and joy in this small serving bowl.

I suggest that you wash all Glass by Charis by hand. It is food safe.
Putting it in the microwave is not recommended.
Size: 9.25" (1.75" deep)
How it was created: The "Passion and joy" bowl was created by placing two pieces of clear glass on the kiln shelf. The design was created using hand-crushed opaque glass on top. It was fired in the kiln at a full fuse. More glass was added to make the design just how I wanted it to be and it was fired again. The fused piece was slumped in a round bowl mold. This piece was in the kiln for three 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.
