Pate de Verre Bowls

The bowls in this series are made using a pate de verre process that uses glass frit to build a thin sided bowl.  For a description of how these bowls are made go to “Project Notes”.   I learned how to make these thin sided frit blows from Alicia Lomne.  Check out her website at

The “birds in flight” pattern on the out side of the bowl is a native american coil basket pattern.  The inside of the bowl invokes a starry night inspired by Van Gogh.
