This small bowl by Art Gecko Glass is created by slumping a piece of thick clear glass with the addition of some pink and white giving the bowl the appearance of strawberry and cream floating on ice. Slumping is formed by placing sheet of glass onto a mould and placed in a kiln then fired at a temperature high enough to melt the glass sufficiently to slump but not pool in the bottom and then cooled down.
This beautiful bowl has a lovely soft pink and grey combed design with flecks of pure gold throughout the entire piece in an absolute clear body giving this piece an ethereal magical quality which can be seen better when you click on the image and then further click on that larger image to view a super sized image that you can scroll around for the detail.
This bowl has a clear body with a lovely green swirl that starts from the rim and works its way ti the centre of the pontil on the base. Created by one of my favourite artists Gene Polt from Western Australia originally from Austria. Gene Passed away many years ago but his work is his legacy.
A wonderful bowl in a soft honey colour with flecks of varying colours on the main body of the piece then a trailing of a darker honey is swirled around the bowl and trimmed with a dark rim. This item has a warm and inviting look with it’s subtle but sophisticated form on a clear base. Made by Hunter Valley artist Setsuko Ogishi displaying yet another facet to her talents. I adore Setsuko’s work as she is constantly reinventing herself.
Made by Hunter Valley artist Setsuko Ogishi this beautiful flat bowl is stunning in black and white mottles with a small square of gold leaf to enhance its appearance. It is a difficult task to achieve a piece of glass that is simple in form yet elegant in its beauty however this bowl does just that. The black and white blend together complimenting each other making this piece a valuable addition to a contemporary home being able to blend into any colour scheme.

The bubbles design in this platter is repeated in several of Julio Santos work giving his pieces the look of ice frozen on a lake in the winter and this platter is no exception. A closer look will show the clarity of the class as well as giving a better view of the network of bubbles plus you can just make out the stamp with his signature.
This platter is in clear glass with a combed decoration of lime green and subtle shades of brown. It is crafted by Western Australian artist Peter Moorfoot who’s work is available in selected galleries.
