All the crystals start off as clear square cane which I cold work into shape, then I pre-heat them in a pick up box and stick them either to a large hot bit or right on to the piece. The Gio'd piece is was blown, cold worked and then heated back up to put the crystals inside. The Awaken piece was dipped in water over and over to produce that crackled effect on the outside of bowl. Shadow and Gio'd was made using a special color called black adventurine. Both Gio'd and Awaken are rolled in pure silver foil.
