This gorgeous white and blue bullseye glass bowl is quite a conversation piece. Made from fused glass, the cream and blue pattern creates a mesmerizing design that will add a touch of beauty to any room it's placed in.

TECHNIQUE: This piece begins as colored sheet glass cut into strips and melted together in a glass blowing studio called a “hot shop”. The glass is rolled up onto a blowpipe and heated to temperatures exceeding 1600 degrees. Once the glass is molten, it’s shaped, stretched, and pulled into a long hollow glass rod, called cane. This cane is cut into small rings of varying thicknesses. These pieces, called murrini, are each ground and polished by hand then arranged and tack fused in a kiln. This means the glass is partially melted, just enough to fuse together but not heated hot enough to melt completely and change the shape of the individual murrini. Finally the glass is placed on top of a mold and heated just to the point when it begins to move with gravity and slumps into the shape of the mold.

DIMENSIONS: 8-¼" x 1-1/2"
