This bowl features stripes of different shades Red, Blues and Greens to create a Rainbow of colors. The stripes 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. 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. After the round panel has cooled, I slump it into a mold to create the bowl shape. For this bowl, I did a couple of extra steps after the slump, where I ground and polished the top rim of the bowl to create a flat surface, then sandblasted the entire surface of the bowl to give it a beautiful matte finish.
This bowl can be used functionally or simply placed on a shelf or table to be admired.
