Into the Wood Bowl

$700
Bring autumn inside with the rich ochre and burnt orange hues in this hefty glass bowl. Ripples of glass reminiscent of the whorls of bark surrounding tree limbs are rimmed with a barkesque crackly pattern made with glass powders. On the underside of the rim, a stony pattern is made of hundreds of tiny pieces of glass.

Description

I combined shards of glass in browns and oranges, with just a hint of black, in a crucible with a hole in the bottom, heated it until the glass was molten and flowed out the bottom of the crucible, and allowed the taffy-like glass to spread across a ceramic shelf in my largest kiln.

To make the rim, I layered glass powders on a fabric-like surface, doused them in water so they’d stick together, and squeezed and bent the surface to form fissures that reminded me of bark and let both the layers of glass be visible.

Fused, sandblasted for a matte finish, and slumped.
