“Keep it simple,” is my mantra at this busy time of year. But simple doesn’t necessarily mean humdrum. In fact, simple quite often is very elegant. Take this cheery bowl for example. It’s super easy to create and still makes a flashy, festive holiday decoration. In the interest of getting you out and into your studio where all the fun happens, I’m going to keep this post simple, too. So let’s get to it.
This bowl is made with two layers of glass plus accent pieces on the top layer. Cut a 10-inch circle out of white glass for the base. Cut a second 10-inch circle out of the pattern glass. Stack the pattern on the white base. Cut 9 holly leaf shapes out of green glass. Grind them if needed to smooth out the shapes. Position the leaf shapes and fusible pebbles on the pattern layer. Fire the glass to a full fuse temperature. Slump into a fluted mold. Ta-Da! You have a beautiful seasonal treasure that is sure to bring cheer to your home for years to come.
For this project I used:
Spectrum Glass, 200, white, for the base
Uroboros Glass, 11-29-96, Clear, Greens, Pink, Fracture, Green Streamers, for the top layer
Spectrum Glass, 128AVSF, Dark Green Aventurine, for the holly leaves
Spectrum Glass, Red Pebbles, for the holly berries
