Add sophistication and style to your table with this timeless bowl. The Patina collection is made from gold leaves burnt using hand torches to give create the iridescent metal look which gives the appearance of a leopard skin pattern naturally caused and made by hand. Each piece is handmade using a spun glass technique. Once the glass has cooled down, each bowl is hand-decorated on the back of the glass starting with gilding the silver, gold or copper leaves on the surface.
Once the surface is cleaned from metal leaf residues, the item is heat cured and then layered with organic pigment in by hand. As the metal layer soaks the paints in, all items are sealed with a special lacquer to assure its resistance to usage, then it's heated for a final time to cure the item and penetrate all materials on the glass surface. From start to finish, each one takes up to 3 hours to create!
You can use this unique piece of art as a large centerpiece bowl or decor piece on your coffee table. Or use it as a coin plate, jewelry tray, or even a soap dish in your bath. You can also decorate your table at your next dinner party and use this bowl to serve food such as salad, dessert, appetizers, cheese and more. Or pour in some water and add some tealights, which will look fabulous and create a lovely ambiance as they float in this beautiful bowl.
