What a great Valentines Day gift this art glass bowl would make! A nice touch would be to fill it with chocolates or perhaps floating flower heads. The heart shape of the bowl makes it also a great gift for newlyweds – it will remind them of their love all year round. Handcrafted by Jim Loewer Glass Co. of Philadelphia. Comes in red only.
Dimensions: 3.5h x 5.5diam. (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.
