Opaque Closed Glass Bowl, Orange Exterior, Red Interior, Red, White 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 a hand made “closed” glass bowl made by Elliott Glass Art. It has an opaque orange exterior and a red interior. It has on the outside surface swirls of colors, mainly red, white and purple. These swirls of colors were applied to the bowl surface by applying a glass “bit” containing the colors onto the outside surface of the bowl and melting the colors into the glass by further heating and forming into the bowl shape. The bowl can also be used as a small vase as well. Its dimensions are: 2.75″ in height; 1.75″ opening at the mouth; 4” at the shoulder which is that part of the bowl that is widest; and 2.5″ wide at the base.

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.
