After taking early retirement in 1990, I had a burning desire to fulfill two “hobbies” I had wanted to do for years: watercolors and stained glass. I enrolled in classes for each subject, but much to my dismay I learned I couldn’t draw. In the meantime the glass bug had bitten me really hard.
After watching numerous shows on PBS with Vickki Payne, my nephew’s wife bought me a tiny kiln for the microwave for Christmas. That’s all it took! The arthritis in my hands was prohibiting me from continuing to do stained glass, so kiln-fired glass was right down my alley. In 1994 I bought my first kiln and you might say “the rest is history.”
The drop-out bowl is ideal for a floating candle, vase, candy dish, or you can just enjoy its beauty. The drop-out bowl measures 9 inches across with a 7 inch opening and stands 3 3/4 inches high.
As shown: Blue, Green & Yellow stripes fused over clear glass. Can be made in your own custom colors.
