This stunning 20cm bowl is gilded with fine silver leaf. It is a piece of art and looks wonderful with a tea light inside. The bowl comes in a lovely presentation box filled with recycled wood shavings. The bowl in the photo is 20cm but it is also available in the larger 28cm size.
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 plate may vary slightly from the photograph depending on its position in the kiln, amount of glass used etc.
