This glass bowl is very elegant. The strips of dichroic “Sizzle Stix” really sparkle in the sunlight.
I stacked two layers of clear Bullseye 90 on the bottom. I cut the black strips for the borders and then mitered each corner by grinding them at a 45 degree angle. I put these strips on top of the clear.
I previously fused the dichroic strips onto a square of French Vanilla Bullseye 90. I put this smaller square on top of the clear. After that, I flipped it face down to full fuse it and slumped it face up into a 9″ Ball mold to get this bowl shape.
I had a lot of fun making this glass bowl. I sold it at the Brookings Festival of the Arts, so I do need to make more. I think I will experiment with different colors of the dichroic Sizzle Stix and the color of the border.
