Sandstone Bowls

My Sandstone Bowls are hand-blown and free-formed functional glass that take a contemporary approach on the traditional two-thousand year old Roman technique of “threading” colored glass.

The contemporary glass bowls of this series are designed with several layers of threaded solid glass color inclusions creating variations on the repetitive geological patterns.

The patterns in my contemporary glass Sandstone Bowls are inspired by my travels to the southwestern United States and the dramatic layers of color formed by the exposed geology of the “Navajo Sandstone,” which is native to that region.
