A stunning table center piece or wall mounted sculpture, this large glass platter is strikingly colored with  brilliant, swirling shades of red, orange, yellow, green and aqua accented with black and a touch of white.

The process begins by gathering molten (2000 degrees Fahrenheit) glass from a furnace onto a blow pipe. After the glass is set and the colors have been  added and manipulated, a bubble is  blown into the glass. The bubble is then coaxed into the desired form using a variety of tools (jacks, paddles, wet newspaper).  Two or more bubbles  may be used and fused together in a process known as Incalmo. The finished piece is then placed into an annealing oven where it cools slowly at a controlled rate.
