Shades of Purple

Shades of Purple

Shades of Purple is another bowl in my celestial series that speaks to my personal observations.  It’s the sunrise and the sunset.  The beginning and the end.  Swirled together into a large spiral with little gold stars denoting my attachment to glitteratzi.  And the golden paths that we all follow.

This bowl is made with six shades of Bullseye purple powder atop a clear iridescent substrate.  I  form most of my bowls with a drop ring, because I like having control of the shape.  If you’re unfamiliar with kilnforming, a drop ring is a flat ceramic ‘donut’, often used to form vases.  The ring is positioned inside the kiln, on stilts with the glass disc centered atop.  The glass drops through the ring, or ‘donut hole’ as I slowly apply just enough heat to soften the glass and form the shape.
