Home Sweet Home: etched mouth blown flashed glass bowl 2017

 

 

Yankee Doodle, etched mouthblown flashed glass bowl 2017

 

The design for these bowls is taken from antique metal Polyphon musical box discs. They are the first in a series of bowls I am making on this theme. I am interested in musical box discs as objects which use a graphic analogue code to generate popular music, and I want to illuminate them by reinterpreting them as objects in glass. Each piece carries the title of the music it represents.
