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.
