How it was created: The "poppy field" ice cream bowl was created by cutting a circle from a sheet of clear glass and laying it on the kiln shelf for the base. I then used hand-crushed opaque glass to create the design on top. The layers were fused together for a day. The next day the 6.5" circle fused piece was put in a small bowl mold with interesting ridges on the side and fired for another day. Unfortunately, this piece slumped crooked so I had to go through the whole process of firing again. The "poppy field" ice cream bowl was in the kiln for four 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.
