This bowl began by fusing a lot of small pieces of different colors of glass to a white base glass. That piece of glass was then heated in a kiln while being compressed under heavy weights which caused the glass with the colors to be squeezed and pushed out from the center. As the colors migrated outward, they also became thinner, more translucent and blended together to form additional shades. The soft, indistinct edges of the different colors and the way they blend reminds me of the look of watercolor painting which is why I refer to this as a Watercolor Bowl.
For this bowl, rather than use a mold with a flat bottom, I chose to create feet for the bowl using iridized marbles which gives it an elegant look.
