Glass bowls

Deborah creates elegant textured cast glass bowls. The allure of 23.5ct gold sets of the jewel like colours.

The surface of the bowls is created by using highly textured fabrics. The juxtaposition of surface marks such as the weave, frayed edges or structural folds of deeply ribbed fabric create the composition. 

A mould is made from this in which the glass and gold are fired in the kiln. After firing the mould is broken away, a one off piece!

The edges are highly polished which highlights the colour and contrasts with the opacity of the textured glass. The deceptive simplicity of the design results in a beautiful centrepiece.
