Opaque Hand Blown Blue Closed Glass Bowl with White Interior and Red and White Exterior Swirls
Click on the Shop on Etsy button to visit my shop there. You will see all of my available stock.
This glass bowl is a hand made “closed” bowl. It has an opaque blue exterior and a white interior. And there are red and white “swirls” that circle the outside towards the bottom of the bowl. The exterior color “swirls” were, again applied to the bowl using a hot glass bit of molten colored glass. And the colored glass was melted into the bowl surface prior to formation of the bowl shape. This bowl would also be perfect as a small vase to hold small flowers. Please note: There is a slight flaw just below the inside of the lip where a bit of blue is exposed within the white. This is shown in the pictures. Its dimensions are: 3″ in height; 1.75″ opening at the mouth; 4” at the shoulder, which is that part of the bowl that is the widest across; and has a 2.5″ wide base. Please be aware that any extraneous marks (white, black, 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.
