Portfolio Bowl square - Green with puff balls
Puff Balls, at elegant attention, stand guard around the sides of this square serving bowl.
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 it in the microwave is not recommended.
Size: 9" x 9" (2.5" deep)
How it was created: The "Green with puff balls" bowl was created by laying one square piece of clear glass on the kiln shelf with another square of transparent green glass on top. I added multiple colours of hand-crushed opaque glass and green stringer to create the design. It was fused in the kiln. Then it was slumped in an 9"x9" square mold.
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.
