Fused Glass Bowls ‘Palladium’ by Teresa Chlapowski

Richly intriguing fused glass bowls with great depth of colours.

Teresa has created a vessel bowl with an exciting combination of texture and colours in this ‘Palladium’ piece.

A lustrous silvery-white palladium leaf has been fused into the piece. After 2 firings the palladium turns to tones of peacock and gunmetal.

Glass powders are gently sieved onto the glass and then forked to create unique ‘feathered’ patterns. Then large frits are added to highlight this ‘feathery’ pattern.

The bowl has been fused and slumped into a one-off mould that is delicately dismantled to retrieve the final product. Every piece is completely unique.

Put it in sunlight or under a lamp to enjoy the lustrous reflections from this delightful bowl.

Fused Glass Bowls – Artist

Teresa Chlapowski Glass Artist. Teresa is a mixed media artist working with photography, digital art, glass-influenced cyanotype prints, and both sculptural and functional glass.

From her studio in Harrow, she uses sand casting and fusing glass techniques and combines her glass work, with painting, photography, and ceramics to full effect.

She uses photography to document her artistic journey and to uncover inspiration in the wooded, autumnal undergrowth, ancient sand drifts by pitted cliffs, or clouds reflected in puddles.

Teresa began her artistic journey with knitwear, and spent many years designing, before taking classes in ceramics, sculpture, and glass at the University of Hertfordshire over the course of many years.

Glass was the medium that grabbed hold of her soul, and she knew this was the medium through which she could best express her worldview. She fell in love with its mysterious alchemical properties; what was once a flowing hot river became a solid form that makes light dance to its tune.

Teresa’s figurative sculptural work provides glimmers and glints of the human form. A mystery wrapped inside an enigma, that is both intriguing and revealing at one and the same time.

Her fused glass panels are influenced by her time as a textile artist, with organised lines in a riotous kaleidoscope of colours.
Teresa has continued to evolve her practice and has taken master classes with Colin Reid and Max Jacquard.

She has sand cast glass at the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham and now sand casts with Jon Lewis and Ewa Warzyniak at Parndon Mill, Harlow, Essex.
