The slightly moody colours of this pretty little blue art glass dish come from the evening light on the estuary shoreline where I live, with the crackle effect echoing the ripples on the sand.
The dish is around 13cm (5") square and the top surface is gorgeously tactile matte glass - you won't be able to resist stroking it! And underneath, a 'secret' - a highly polished base.
The bowl is perfect for holding a small collection of shells or beach treasures, but you may not want to cover up the beautiful surface by putting anything in it at all.
During the lockdown period I, in common with artists, went back to working in a sketchbook more regularly. This series of dishes grew directly from that work when I started to experiment with ways to replicate the colours and marks on glass.
I create these dishes from layers of coloured glass powder and clear glass fused together in my kiln. I then smooth and shape the edges of the dish before firing it again to shape it. Each kiln firing typically takes up to 24 hours.
