How’s It Made?
Handcrafted from art glass, we create the Gnome Party Bowl using multiple steps. First, we cut and polish the glass to the appropriate sizes. The hats are arranged carefully, centred equally. The beards are created using thin strips of glass, cut to various lengths to ensure a sculpted edge. These pieces are fired once to a high temperature to smooth the surface of the glass. Once the glass cools, we cut glass for the gnome noses and grind to shape. Then arrange them in place, and fire to a lower temperature to ensure the contoured texture remains.
Once the design is fired flat with all of the design elements, it goes into the kiln once more for a slump firing. This means the temperature is only high enough to soften the glass, enough for it to slump into a mold. When the glass cools, it retains the shape of the mold, while keeping all of the textured detail on the surface.
The colour in this artwork is the glass itself. This means you won’t ever have to worry about the colour fading or washing off. During the firing, we anneal the glass. Because of this, the strength and durability of the glass is increased, so you know it will last for many years.
