Opaque Closed Deep Purple Glass Bowl with White Interior and White, Pink and Purple Swirls
Click on the Shop on Etsy button to visit my shop there. You will see all of my available stock.
This is another of my hand made “closed” glass bowls. Its exterior is a very deep purple and its interior is of white glass. It is opaque. It also has swirls of white, pink, and purple glass on its outer surface down towards the bottom of the bowl. The purple is of an extreme deepness such that it appears to be black in color. But if you look inside the bowl at the white surface you can see the purple color. This is evident in the close up picture of the bowl and its opening. This bowl, like many of my other bowls, would make a perfect vase. This would be the perfect vase to place cut flowers in. Its dimensions are: 3″ in height; 1.75″ opening at the mouth; 4.5” at the shoulder which is that part of the bowl that is widest; and 2.75″ wide at the base. Please be aware that any extraneous marks (white or otherwise) could be due to light reflections, shadows, or dust particles on the glass and may NOT be a part of the glass itself.

I create unique hand-blown glass vessels and artwork from molten glass and want to share them with you! In 2009, after having had obtained both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in molecular biology and after having worked in the field (with DNA) for 18+ years, I decided to take up glass blowing.
I was attracted to the art of glass blowing and to the beautifully colored things that one could make. I started taking classes and private lessons with private instructors and eventually was able to create glass vessels such as bowls, vases, and cups in various colors and designs as well as beautiful glass art starting from molten glass that is kept at 2100 degrees F. As a result, I amassed a fairly large collection of over 180 pieces of glass.
So I decided to share them with the public by selling them. I opened up “Elliott Glass Art” which is an online business. I have a personal web site that you are welcome to visit, a Facebook page and this Etsy shop that I have created.
So as not to totally forget my previous career in molecular biology, I will be undertaking an effort to construct the DNA molecule in glass, and specifically a gene that I sequenced in my previous career. Of course, I will continue to make vessels of bigger and more elaborate quality, and I want very much, to share them all with you.
