Nido 23 Summer Orange and Azure Bowl

Art Glass Bowl

Created by Joseph Enszo
Rated 5 based on 2 customer reviews
In brilliant hues, constellations of handcrafted murrini flow across this remarkable fused glass bowl. The piece is slumped and fire polished to create a graceful, fluid form.

Taking inspiration from macro and microscopic designs, Joseph Enszo utilizes traditional Italian techniques, redesigned to emphasize the natural properties of glass under various physical forces. Enszo's aesthetic is a unique intersection of three components: Italian decorativeness, Eastern simplicity, and a reference to natural science.

The process begins with thousands of individual handmade murrini, which are laid out and fused into flat compositions, which in turn are cut on a water-cooled diamond saw, ground, and smoothed with a wet belt sander, and sometimes sandblasted. Finally the piece goes back to the kiln for slumping, fire-polishing, and annealing.

Food safe. Each piece is unique; exact coloration and patterning will vary from piece to piece.

Hand wash.
