How it's made

MATERIALS: Fused glass

This fish fused glass art bowl is made of 15 individual pieces of Spectrum 96 Art Glass.

The pieces of the pattern are each cut by hand from larger sheets of art glass.

Each piece is individually ground until they all fit together perfectly.

The pieces are then placed in a specialised glass kiln, on a clear layer of glass. They are fused at 760ºC to create a single piece of flat glass. This takes around 16 hours.

Once cooled, this flat piece is then burnished with polishing pads, and again kiln-fused overnight for a fire polish.

To achieve the final bowl shape, the flat piece is slumped over a curved ceramic mould at a slightly lower temperature than regular firing.

At each firing stage, the glass is annealed and cooled overnight for maximum strength and durability.

While the production process is painstaking and lengthy, it's the only way to get the wonderful finished look of glass art.

About this work

I designed the unique pattern and colour combination of this fish dish, based on an earlier design of a silver fish pendant I malso made.

Each of my glass objects are one of a kind - I never do identical objects. Even where the design is similar, they all have a unique colour combination.

During the glass fusing, small air bubbles can appear and become trapped within the glass. This is a natural occurrence that adds to the beauty of handmade glass products.

Care of your glass

Even the strongest glass can break, so please handle your bowl with care.

When needed, dust it with a lint-free cloth, or wipe with a soft, damp cloth. Don't use an abrasive cleaner as this could scratch it.

Because of the handmade nature of glass, please don’t put it in a microwave or dishwasher.

Have the bowl near the window to allow the light to reflect off it. Turn it in different ways to see how it best catches the light.
