Some of you might remember the disaster I had with firing this painting a while ago.
I vowed to try again with what I wanted to do and this time there was success! I still don't know what the actual problem was last time, but I do have theories. Anyhoo - so happy with how it finally came out.
Here is a process photo of how the bowl was actually built ---
You can see the layer of clear strips on the bottom with the medium amber glass strips on top.
And here is the finished bowl!
I love the striations created by the overlapping strips of glass. And, it is difficult to see in the photo, but there are lacy holes throughout the border that lend a very delicate look as well.
The bowl is about 15" diameter and 3" deep. It is currently available for sale - let me know if you are interested. :-)
