Spring flowers radiating outward in this hand crafted fused glass bowl. This is a handmade fused glass piece with a shallow curvature perfect for decoration or everyday use.
I start with a base of flat clear glass and hand create the flower, sky, and cloud elements form colored ground glass (frit). It is then capped with a clear piece of art glass to add depth and thickness. I fully fuse these together in the kiln. I then fire the piece in the kiln a second time to slump it into a bowl form.
Each of my glass art creations is a unique pattern. It is fired to 1,400 degrees in my kiln, then slowly cooled through a proper annealing stage to maintain durability and strength.
