Red and Black Basket Weave Glass Bowl

Red and Black Basketweave Glass Bowl

I made this glass bowl quite awhile ago.  It was my favorite glass piece for quite awhile, well, it still is one of my favorites!  I don’t think I showed you a picture of it before.  I am showing it to you now, because a nice couple that we know just told me that they want to buy this glass bowl, if I hadn’t sold it yet.  Wow!  How exciting!

For a long while, I didn’t care if I sold it or not.  It was my “signature piece.”   I will certainly miss this glass bowl, but I know where it is if I want to see it again and it will be going to a nice home!

I made this glass bowl before I had any fancy equipment.   Can you believe that I actually made templates for each of the strips?  I didn’t have a strip cutter yet, so that was the only way I could get nice and even edges.  It took me a long, long, time to grind the edges, but it was a labor of love.  I stacked the strips using every other one, which resulted in four layers.  This is the same technique that I have used with my other glass basket weave plates and glass vases.
