the ridged dish - sunflower
the ridged dish is a small glass catch-all with softly ridged sides built up with layers of glass.
inspired by the tall fall sunflowers that are now dried & bowing.
the glass for the petals is custom made. colours are chosen, mixed & once molten, it is pulled into a long cane before each individual petal is worked in the flame.
once cooled, the pieces are assembled in the kiln to be fused & slumped into shape.
