Inspired by a commission, this large bowl conjures up images of space, planets and orbits. It was water jet cut at the National Glass Centre in Sunderland; a powerful yet delicate cutting machine that can pierce and cut glass without cracking it. This allows the coloured glass to be placed in an intricate pattern accurately and effectively. The dichroic band, reminiscent of the rings around Saturn, shines differently according to the viewing angle. The way this bowl transmits colour when it is lit by the sun is both riach and generous - and it can change the ambiance of a room. This would make a special present for someone on a wedding day, an anniversary, a birthday - or, perhaps, a present for yourself.
This is a large bowl that is 14" in diameter and 3" deep.
