    Wooh.... those are amazing! OH loves the first one too. How long do they take to make?

      They are both gorgeous but the second one is my favourite, such an unusual and pretty pattern.
      I am intrigued at how you make them, do they both start off as small pieces of glass melted together? If so I am amazed at how even they are.

                Thanks everyone . .

                The blue bowl was made from squares of the different coloured blue glass stacked 4 high with strips of white glass laid on edge in between them . . fused together . . hand ground on the surfaces using diamond hand pads . . took ages going down thro the grit grades . . machine ground edges . . re-fired to "polish" the glass and fired to slump into a bowl mould.

                Cutting the glass took about 1 1/2 days . . cos as you can see all the edge pieces aren't square and each piece had to be cut by hand to get the curve. There are over 220 pieces of glass in total.

                The white bowl is 3 pieces of white glass cut into circles with the green circles laid on top . . the "lattice" work is made from glass stringers . . long thin pieces of glass 2mm diameter. The grey outlining comes from a chemical reaction between the white glass and the colour of the stringers and depends on kiln temp as well . . but since I made it Bullseye Glass have deleted that particular white glass from their catalogue . . so I'm now having to experiment and find another white glass that reacts in a similar way.

                The underneath of the bowl is also decorated . . unfortunately I don't have a really good photo of it!

                    They are beautiful! I would not have the patience or skill come to think of it to ever make anything like these! Great work.

                      Such lovely work especially now we know how many hours and how much effort went into each piece. They must have cost a fortune to make, I dread to think how much they must be worth. Mind you, they look worth every penny of it.
