Flying Horse Bowl On Blue Antique Glass 4″
This bowl is part of our More Horses collection of equestrian art glass home decor. It is 4.5″ in diameter.
Creating it was a 4-step process. First a apiece of deep blue, antique glass was cut to the size of the final piece. The flying horse was hand painted onto the glass using special enamel paint. The glass was then placed in an electric kiln and heated to 1375 degrees, the temperature at which the paint adheres to the glass and matures to its deepest hues. After cooling, the edge of the piece was ground to eliminate irregularities. Finally, the piece was put back in the kiln on top of a mold and heated to 1250 degrees. At this temperature the glass softens and gravity causes it to sink into the mold and assume its final shape.
We hope you enjoy this versatile, one-of-a-kind, art glass piece. Use it to hold jewelry, change, or keys. Place a small candle or decorative soap in it. Use it to serve dips and small food items. Or put it on a stand and simply enjoy the play of colors. It makes a lovely gift for any occasion.
