Four Section Incalmo Bowl in Blues


This incalmo bowl is made from four separate sections. Incalmo is an extremely complex technique where each section is made separately and then they are joined one at a time while the glass is still hot.

The basic process of incalmo involves blowing two separate individual bubbles, which are then cut and fused along their rims before final shaping. This particular bowl has four separate sections meaning it required four separate bubbles!

As an aside, incalmo possibly refers to the calmness required to perform such a tricky operation, which only the most skilled glass blowers are able to accomplish. And Dirwood's incalmo pieces are some of the best and most beautiful in the glass blowing world!
