I have provided a lot of pictures to best describe the condition of this bowl. Because it is so labor-intensive, fusing had, by the mid-twentieth century, been all but abandoned in favor of glass blowing.
Essentially, fusing is the creation of a glass sandwich. On one piece of enamel-coated glass, a design is created, either drawn with colored enamels, or pieced with glass segments. Over this, another piece of enameled glass is laid. Placed on a mold, the object is then heated. Under heat, the glass slumps to the shape of the mold.
The design itself is fused between the outer glass pieces, with additional layers often adding to the texture and color complexity. Be sure to scroll down, look left. THERE ARE MORE PICTURES that do not appear in the top gallery. (The pictures are of the exact piece you will receive).
