Glass Dish

This bowl was made by first firing layers of clear iridized glass and turquoise glass together in my kiln @ 1450 degrees. A second firing involved melting or sinking the dichroic glass fish, as well as the bubbles formed from reactive clear glass, onto the flat plate @ 1425 degrees.I had already made the fish and the bubbles in separate kiln firings. The third firing was for shaping the bowl; I placed the flat square on top of a ceramic mold, and "slumped" the bowl into its final shape @ 1250 degrees.
