Product Details

This handmade decorated glass bowl is a one off. It has a very distinctive composition with its’ blue mosaic, gold lustre and 23.5ct gold design.

It is a handmade cast glass bowl. The composition is based on architectural facades

The textures are created by casting from textiles into plaster which is my mould. I place the gold in the right place and then fill it with billets of glass. Then it's fired it in the kiln over 3 days. The plaster mould is broken away so the bowl is unique.

There is a second firing to form it into a bowl shape and to fire on the real gold lustre at the same time as the enamels. These are a mosaic of 3 shades of blue.

Finally the rim is polished on a linisher, using 6 progressively finer grit belts, The last belt is made of cork which gives the rim a high polish. This is a lovely contrast with the slight opacity of the textured surface. The reverse is also polished.
