How’s It Made?
Handcrafted from art glass, we create the Greenman Bowl using multiple steps. First, we cut and polish the green glass to the appropriate size. Then, we add dark green glass powders to the surface of a ceramic textured mold. This allows for the shading in the fine details. Next, we add clear frits to ensure the shading is exactly where it needs to be through the firing process. Last, we carefully place the sheet glass onto the frits and load the glass into the kiln.
We fire it first flat to melt the glass gently onto the frits and powders, flowing into the textured crevices of the ceramic mold. The colour in the bowl is the glass itself. Therefore, you won’t ever have to worry that the colour or design will peel or fade in the sun.
Finally, once the glass cools, we clean the flat glass piece. We place the glass onto a ceramic slumping mold and heat it once more. When the fused glass cools, it holds the bowl shape of the ceramic slumping mold. During each firing, the glass is annealed. Because of this, the strength and durability of the bowl are increased, so you know it will easily withstand daily use.
