Adventures in Aventurine

165.00

This incredible 16" bowl incorporates a stunning pattern in shades of blue, highlighted by stripes of aventurine blue. The aventurine glass sparkles in just the right light. The patterned section is nestled between dark cobalt blue and a complimentary sky blue glass. The base of this one-of-a-kind glass art bowl is a soft matte finished white.

This bowl was created by fusing (or melting) three layers of glass in a kiln; first the base glass, then the pattern pieces and finally, it's capped with a layer of clear glass. Once that fusing is done, the layers of glass become one and that piece is ready to be "formed." The glass is then placed on a mold and fired again in a kiln. The temperature of the second firing is lower and allows the glass to melt, or "slump," into the mold. The base and edges of the bowl are then polished to finish off this unique piece of art.

The bowl measures 16-inches across by 3-inches deep. Each bowl comes with instructions regarding the care of the glass. It is not recommended that they be placed in a dishwasher or used in a microwave. Hand washing with dish soap and warm water is recommended. Should you choose, a light coating of coconut oil can be applied to the base to ensure the smooth matte finish.

**Each bowl is individually and meticulously handcrafted. Slight differences may occur in size and patterning.
