I've written about going to GLASSWORKS before, but I was so thrilled with the bowl I made, I just had to post the photo! I went back again with my friend, Candace. She made a small tray and I needed a large bowl for Connecticut. It had to be big enough to hold five pounds of potato salad which is the amount I usually make for large group meals.

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.


  1. Life is too short to save the pretty things for special use! Use it often and enjoy it! We can still go back and make more pretty things.
