This bowl features streaks of transparent Deep Cherry Red on a background of White. The Red streaks all appear to Radiate out from the center which is what gives my Radiant series its name.
Radiant bowls are created by first cutting narrow strips of glass and standing them on edge to be fused together into a sheet. The particular glass that I used to make the strips for this bowl was White with an infusion of Red. After the sheet of strips has cooled, I cut it into wedge shapes which can be fitted together to create a circle, then fuse them together again. For this bowl, I created a linear pattern of Red and White stripes running tangentially to the Radiant pattern to serve as an accent. After the round panel has cooled, I grind and polish the edge then slump it into a mold to create the bowl shape.
This platter can be used functionally or simply placed in a stand to be admired.
