I had a lovely opportunity to create a bowl for a daughter to give to her mother for a birthday gift.
The Mom is a fan of my glass! I knew this because she is a fan on my studio
So it was quite an honour to be asked to create something specific for this occasion!
see below for the steps in the evolution of the bowl for Debbie.
