This was a fantastic commission which came about from an unfortunate breakage.
We enjoy a challenge and this was no exception. We regularly repair or remake pieces of glass but this piece was exceptional.
The clear glass bowl that we had to make was 50cm in diameter and had to be thick enough for the heavily cut pattern that needed to be applied.
The 'blank' took several attempts and a team of four to manhandle the volume of glass that was required.
The blank was delivered to one of the finest glass cutters in the uk for the elaborate pattern to be applied.
It now rests high above a dining table in a private residence in Leicestershire.
