Trees in the mist

I am lucky enough to have a very talented dad who makes beautiful glassware, and I'm luckier still that he let me loose on one of his pieces to try out a design of my own.




The bowl is made up of layers of different coloured glass, I masked off the areas of my design and sandblasted the exposed glass away to reveal the colours beneath. I did this in layers to create an element of depth. I think it's quite successful for a first attempt.
