Peppermint Fused Glass Bowl

Peppermint Fused Glass Bowl

This fused glass bowl has such beautiful pink and white swirls.  This glass bowl was draped over a mold, rather than slumped into a mold.  After cutting a round piece of this peppermint candy baroque glass, it was placed on top of the 6-lobed mold.  I put two layers of thin fire shelf paper in between the mold and the glass, so the glass would come off the mold easily.  The kiln was programmed and, as the glass softened, it draped or fell over the mold, taking the shape of the mold.  I really like this mold, because it creates a uniquely-shaped fused glass bowl.
