Dating back to the Byzantine period DAMASK is a style of weaving is reversible patterns on fabric. This pattern is brought to you in several colors on this bowl to fit all table settings at your most exclusive dinner parties or to enhance the beauty of your home design. Each piece is hand made using spun glass technique, once the glass has cooled down we hand decorate each one on the back of the glass starting with a hand applied patina paint which follows with gilding the silver, gold or copper leaves on the surface. Once the surface is cleaned from metal leaf residues, the item is heat cured we then layer organic pigment in steps to each glass piece by hand. As the metal layer soaks the paints in, all items are sealed with a special lacquer to assure its resistance to usage and heated for a final time to cure the item and penetrate all materials on the glass surface. Start to finish each one takes up to 3 hours to create. You can use this piece of art bowl as a decor piece on your coffee table, coin bowl, jewellery bowl or even a soap dish in your bath. You can also serve food as soup, salad, dessert, appetizers, cheese etc... in this bowl to decorate your table at your dinner party. Good size to use as a nuts bowl as well.
