Kiln fired glass sculpture in a custom-made metal stand with various shades of purple and gray. This intricate geometric patterns of this artwork are created using transparent and opalescent glass stringers (thin glass rods).
The technique used for this bowl was developed by Ian Chadwick, glass artist. The technique starts with patterned sheets of glass that are cut and assembled prior to placement in a kiln to melt the glass. The edges are then coldworked by machine and by hand prior to returning to the kiln for "fire polishing", which provides a final polish to the coldworked edges.
The dimensions, including the stand are 20" H, 17"W, 5"D. The artist has signed the piece on the back.
