Unlike my first visit to GLASSWORKS in Morristown, this time I was more adventurous and I cut all the glass to size, rather than picking out pre-cut pieces. It takes about a week to get the finished work back because they have to fire each piece twice, once to meld the colored glass to the clear glass base and a second time to get the desired shape.
Well, the size and shape are perfect for what I wanted and I was amazed at how professional my bowl looked considering I am definitely not an artist. Unfortunately, the bowl is almost too pretty to use and it looks great on the counter, so I'm going to have to go back again and make one that's more of a 'clunker' that I won't mind using.
