Custom Medium Bowlbowl_md_custom
Your image on glass in your choice of colors. Please email me first through the Custom Work contact page at the top, and tell me about your idea or image, and any color preferences you have. I will email you back and answer your questions, and you can then send me your photo or artwork. Image should be a larger file, around 6x6 and 300 dpi, ideally high-contrast, (but I can do this in Photoshop) and not copyrighted by anyone other than you. I will email you a mock-up with your image/color ideas and ordering instructions. Once a design is worked out and agreed upon, you can go ahead and order it here, noting the design + colors in the comments field (ie "bird platter, brown on ivory, red border"). I can get started as soon as I've received payment. Custom work typically takes about 3-6 weeks after the order is placed, and is not returnable. Note that this price is for one print color/screen, if we go with two print colors, it will be an additional $20 for the screen.
Bowls are screen printed with glass enamels or micas, then fused in a kiln to about 1400 degrees. Glass is then cold worked, returned to the kiln to drape over a stainless steel mold into final shape at about 1230 degrees.
This dish is screen printed, kiln formed glass, 7" across and about 2.25" high. The bottom disc of glass is cut a little larger to create a lip of color at the top edge. Because the pieces are draped over a stainless steel mold, the inside is slightly matte, creating a nice contrast with the super shiny outside. Medium bowls are great for fruit, olive or nut bowls, salsas and dips, hold small trinkets and make cute decorative accents. They are food safe and we recommend hand washing, though they can go in the dishwasher (we like the China cycle for glass).
