Something Brilliant to Behold

This bowl is a fantastic example of work by Klaus Moje, a master designer known to “paint with glass.” To design this object, Moje used kiln-formed fused twisted canes (glass that has been stretched into thin rods or strips) of semi-opaque red-orange glass with deep transparent blues.  Next, the strips were heat laminated together to create a pattern of blue parallelograms arranged perpendicular across the red ground.  Then, he wheel-cut and shaped the glass as an octagonal bowl with a broad flat rim.
