Examples

Brown & Blue

Iridaceae bowl, in pink, brown and blue, 9.5 cm high, 14.5 cm diameter

Bowl in pink, brown and blue, 9.5 cm high, 14.5 cm diameter. The blue iris-shaped flowers are beautifully shown in this example. Notice also the wavy rim of the bowl, which was intentional. Bowls were supposedly made 8 cm or 11.5 cm tall. However, handmade glassmaking is not an exact science since this bowl falls between the two 'official' sizes.

A torpedo vase, in pink, brown and blue, 23.5 cm high, 6.5 cm diameter. Torpedo vases were made in three sizes: 13.5 cm tall (made 1983 only) and 23 and 32 cm tall (made 1983-1985).
