Description

Threads of black glass, scattered over creamy vanilla, one segment shining with iridescence. Gaze into the edge, and you can look under the black glass threads!

You'll want to run your fingers over the three-dimensional wafers of speckled powdered glass with raised edges.

This bowl features juicy, thick, hand-pulled glass cane in a combination of opaque and transparent pinks. Cane this thick is extra time-consuming to produce, because you have to pull it very slowly to maintain its super-size diameter, and after every 12 inches, you have to snip it off and carry it across the room wearing thick mitts to place it into a 950° kiln to cool slowly!

Transparent stripes allow you to look through the bowl. Delicate captured air bubbles remind you that you're looking into a solid that is simultaneously a liquid.

On the back, strands of black glass are scattered. There's something new to see every time you look.

The glass cylinders in this bowl are sections individually cut from hand-pulled glass cane, which I create by heating glass to 1500 degrees and pulling it into rods while molten in a modern-day adaptation of the 16th century techniques of the Murano glassmakers.

Fused, coldworked, and slumped with a gentle swell in the middle.
