Turquoise dish


To make this bowl glass ribs were trailed onto a ball of molten glass. The glass was then rolled against a polished iron or marble surface called a marver. This process made the ribs blend into the body of the vessel creating gentle ridges. The glass was then blown into shape and a strand of glass was trailed onto the base of the dish to make a foot-ring for it to stand on.
