This bowl is made from over a thousand cut 2mm stringers of White, French Vanilla, and Turquoise glass meticulously placed by hand and fused to create the mesmerizing pattern and texture. The glass colors were inspired by the colors of the Jerusalem city flag; however, they were also chosen for their reactive nature to symbolize how this ancient city is holy to three major religions, Judaism, Islam, & Christianity, that often conflict with each other. Note where the French Vanilla comes into contact with Turquoise it turns brown and where it comes into contact with White it turns gray. The bowl rests on a stand made from cow horn.
