This vibrant handmade fused glass dish is eye-catching as a decorative feature on a table or shelf and when the sun shines through it throws a lovely multi-coloured shadow.
This rainbow glass bowl is made from hand cut glass, assembled and fired in my kiln at home. I have cut individual pieces of opal and transparent glass in oranges, reds, yellows, blues, greens and purples and carefully arranged them to create a rainbow effect. Once the layers of glass have been fused together the dish shape has been created using a ceramic mould in a second firing.
This plate measures 26cm by 26cm (10″ x 10″), 6mm (0.25″) thick and has been annealed in the kiln and cooled overnight for maximum strength. As they are made by hand each bowl is unique in appearance.
I have also created some other bowls with the same design :
