Slumped Bowl Has Trapped Air Bubbles

Fused glass, GlassDavid Jacobson1 Comment

I trapped air bubbles between each stripe of glass in this piece.  Not the first time I've used this technique, but I like it every time I do it.  The bubbles capture the light and add sparkle to the bowl. Trapping the air bubbles is similar in method to the Italian technique of using Reticello in blown glass work.
