Silver Foil Bowl
With a grand opening of the Davidson-Gerson Glass Galleries at The Henry Ford, this is a fitting year for Greenfield Village Glass shop to introduce a brand-new entry into their blown glass product line. The silver-foiled collection represents a break-through from early production shop technique to modern influence where glass production moved toward the studio art movement; aesthetics outrivaled utility. Using that inspiration allowed our innovative glass staff to explore further depths in glassmaking. The alchemy of this collection went beyond the chemistry to create color. They added thin sheets of silver to the molten glass surface creating a soft mosaic pattern in the blown-out glass. Each piece is beautiful and remarkably one-of-a-kind. 9"w x 5"h.
