Glass Blowing 2004


A bowl

I was going for a ind of glow effect where the yellow was in the base of the bowl and the rest was blue. I quite like how it turned out.

The color is a fine powder the rest of the pieces use a granular form of color (both are coloured glass just different sizes of pieces)

The blue was applied as a base and then dabbed on it later stages. The yellow was appplied to the tip (which becomes the base of the bowl). The bowl shape comes about by tuning the piece upside down when hot and letting gravity take effect to make it droop
