One of Jim Loewer’s best selling pieces is his Bird Bowl, so named for his adorable bird perched on the edge. These bowls are available in his wide multistripe pattern, and are extra durable as they are made of borosilicate glass (read more about it below). Great for your morning cereal or your evening dessert. We love the bird, but you may also order these bowls without the bird if you choose. Note that we offer a price discount for quantities of 2 or more.
Dimensions: 3.5h x 5.5d (approx.)
About the Artisan: Jim Loewer of Philadelphia, PA, has been a glass artist and teacher for over 14 years. He makes both decorative and functional glass works such as his award-winning Water Drop Bowl, and various tumbler sets, vases, and lighting fixtures. All of Jim’s work is borosilicate (boro) glass, which is the glass used in Pyrex kitchenware. It is stronger and lighter than regular soft glass used in most windows, drinking glasses and art pieces. And unlike regular silicate glass, boro glass is resistant to temperature change because it does not expand and contract. In addition to creating visually stunning pieces, Jim loves to teach his trade to others, and regularly holds classes in his studio in North Philadelphia.
