This handmade large glass bowl is inspired by cottage gardens in the pretty Somerset countryside near my home.
Handmade in my Somerset studio, each of my dishes is hand cut from a large sheet of glass and heavily decorated so may not be an absolutely perfect circle - like me, a bit quirky. Decorated with glass powders and crushed glass frits, handmade murrini canes and thin rods of glass, each piece is fired several times to melt the glass together and shape into the bowl.
The glass decoration is textured (see photos) to give a tactile depth and interest to the piece. Each piece is individually handmade, so although I may have similar pieces on offer, each will be different, just like every country view
This piece is approx 26.5cms diameter (10.25") and 6.5cms (2.5") tall.
Perfect for giving or keeping, this would make a wonderful gift for garden lovers and is suitable for all occasions. It is large and makes a statement when placed on a large table, window ledge or shelf.
All my glass work is handmade by me in my North Somerset studio using the best quality compatible glass, fired in a digital kiln to ensure strength and durability.
