Draped Glass: New life for a Broken Bowl

Fresh from the kiln this morning.  This piece is tangible evidence of the guiding philosophy of my art practice, “Solve et Coagula”, (breaking something apart and putting it back together, stronger).  It started out as a birthstone bowl that met with a tragic fate.  Instead of trashing the many pieces its owner bravely returned them to me.  I fused them back together with additional glass and the gift to me was inspiration to attempt my first drape!  It turned out beautifully and I am grateful.
