Shop Announcement:

Hi! Welcome to Dragon Art Glass on Folksy!

My name is Andrea and I'm a full time glass artist living and working in the valleys of South Wales.
I make a variety of different glassy items, and use different glass working techniques, so you will find things such as plates and bowls; beads and buttons, pictures, suncatchers and jewellery. Due to the processes used, very little of my work is identical, but mostly I am able to match items, so if you see something and it sells before you get chance to buy - feel free to get in touch.
I make a mix of fused, flameworked/lampworked and stained glass, and hope to soon be able to produce blown glass.
I am happy to accept commissions, so if you have something in mind I'm always up for a challenge!
Hope you enjoy my little piece of Folksy.

Clam shaped orange and white crackle effect decorative bowl

Description

This is an unusual clam shaped orange and white bowl or dish, and has been made by the process of draping it over a tall up-ended mold.
Firstly, the fine orange glass layer was sprinkled into the kiln shelf and fired, creating a fine, crackled textured wafer layer. The wafer was cleaned and placed back on the kiln shelf. This was then covered with a thick layer of fine white glass and clear glass and then fired, creating a flat platter.
The platter was then placed on an upright glass shaped mold and had a third kiln firing, allowing the glass to drape. This is what has given it the unique clam shape.
the bowl/dish is about 15cm x 12cm at its widest points, and is about 10cm in height.

Inspiration

I was fascinated by the crackle effect of a glass bowl I had seen, and wanted to attempt to make something with a similar effect. The shape produced by the final firing was a happy accident - and is highly likely to be un-repeatable.
