This stunning bowl is gilded with fine gold and silver leaf. It is a piece of art and looks wonderful with a tea light inside. The bowl in the photo is the 28cm size but it is also available in the smaller 20cm size. The bowl comes in a lovely presentation box filled with recycled wood shavings.
The term Pate de Verre means “glass paste” in French and refers to a casting technique for making objects by using glass ground into a fine powder mixed with a binder to create a paste. The paste is brushed or tamped into a mould, dried, and fused by heating in a kiln. This process takes 2-3 days including the gilding.
Please note that due to the handmade process, each bowl may vary slightly from the photograph depending on its position in the kiln, amount of glass used etc.
