Handmade Fused Glass 25cm Chequered Almond and Black Bowl
Note: This is a “seconds” item, which is considered to have a small imperfections to it or perhaps a test piece and therefore sold at a reduced price.
Why is this reduced price?
Several of the edge black squares are showing signs of devitrification which is more common in my black glass and comes about from the heating, fusing, cooling of the glass – it shows as a milky-scratch like patches – but the surfaces is completely smooth. Kindof looks like a smudge that you just want to clean off but its impossible to clean as it is inside the glass layers (please see photo).
Price is for 1 x Bowl
Handcrafted in my workshop in Cornwall, UK, these are perfect as a fruit bowl or even for keeping your jewellery/earrings, spare change, knick-knacks, car keys, candle or even cosmetics etc inside.
These bowls have been made with two alternating contrasting coloured hand cut glass squares. These are arranged neatly into a chequered pattern with a layer of clear glass underneath and fused together in the kiln to just over 800°c. The glass is then placed back into the kiln and slumped into a round bowl shape making it beautiful and eye catching. Every item is unique but your bowl will be very similar to the stock photo used here.
