This lovely red poinsettia will bloom in your artglass collection, year after year, and never fade or lose its striking beauty!

I made this bowl using a "semi" Pate de Verre method, which is done by mixing frit with a moist binder, and fusing it in a mold. In this case, I am not using the binder.

The entire glass piece is made with frit, which are tiny grains of glass, ranging in size and texture, from a powder, finer than sand, to larger chunks, similar to gravel.
To form the flower, I mixed shades of red and orange frit with clear, and began to layer the color batches carefully into the mold. The intention was to create depth and dimension, by sifting the glass carefully into the desired location, and intensifying the color in strategic areas, to give definition and shape to the individual petals. You have to mound the glass quite high, as in the fusing process, the glass reduces in mass, by well over 50%. For the center of the flower, I used a vibrant red-orange dichroic frit, in a coarser grain, similar to gravel in size. I fired the glass at 1400 degrees, for a full fuse, and in a second firing, I slumped the glass into a ceramic mold, resulting in this beautiful flower bowl! I have signed this artglass piece on the back.

Measurements: 9" in Diameter x 1" Deep
