Unusual Weaving Bowl on Extra Thick Blank – SOLD
This is an extremely unusual design and execution that I’ve only seen one other time. The blank of the bowl is exceptionally thick and heavy and weighs 7lb 1oz.
This bowl features deep, crossed channels Throught the design. What’s particularly unsuual is that the channels are deeply rounded – most cut glass, channels come to a straight angle with miters – but this almost appears scooped out. It’s a stunning effect and on this thick of a blank, they were able to achieve extreme depth. The channels frame some 8 pointed hobstars with fanned centers, flat hobstars, and crosshatched fields. The interior of the bowl features a hobstar framed with notching while the rim features arches framing engraved panels. The rim of the bowl has an unusual scallop and notched motif.
The blank of this bowl is exceptional – especially for such a thick piece. It measures 9″ wide and 4 1/4″ tall.
