It is nice to see the beautiful weather come back to us each spring isn't it? Two years ago when we moved in to our current home, I bought myself a beautiful sleek ceramic bird bath. It was awesome and I loved it.
I brought it into our storage building during that first winter because I know that ceramics don't do well in super cold freezes. But, I forgot to do that this past winter. Big mistake!
The bowl of the bird bath broke into many pieces, but the stand was just fine. So what does a glass bowl maker do when a bowl breaks?? They make a new bowl!
So here is my version - it is made with a clear glass scrap melt, black sgraffito and colored enamel background. It is about 16" diameter and I used a rough octagon of kiln posts to slump it over for this fun ruffled edge effect.
I love it and so do the birds!
