Chicago Flag Medium Bowlbowl_md_chicago_flag
This medium bowl features Chicago's four 6-pointed stars printed in red enamel onto wispy clear-white glass, layered over blue printed stripes, then fused in a kiln to about 1400 degrees. Glass is then cold worked, returned to the kiln to drape into final shape at about 1250 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).
