If you are familiar with Hobbs Snowstorm art glass, this bowl is the same dimensions and made using the same colors. It started as Ruby Heat sensitive glass and fired to produce the Ruby only at the top portion of the clear glass bowl. Then cased again in heat sensitive glass with phosphates in it.Then fired again to produce the White opalescent color only halfway down the sides.
