Earthtone Emperor Bowl by Randi Solin
7 x 7 in
A Solinglass original created by Randi Solin, known in the world of contemporary art glass for her unique style and coloration process. The idea behind Randi Solin’s Emperor Bowl series is based on an ancient pottery form, designed to hold one flower. Asian-influenced forms lend themselves well to her coloration style, and the Emperor Bowl lends itself particularly well to the magnification of her optics, which is an important component of Randi Solin’s work.
Created in her studio, Solinglass, this hand blown, free blown glass off the pipe with an external coloration of sixteen multi-layered colors of powder, cane, and frit. In the reheating chamber the gas and oxygen environment is changed to an all gas flame, creating a reaction from the metals in the coloration, similar to a raku technique. Cut and polished top.
