Fused Glass Bowl

This is so cool you have to look at it. I made this fused glass bowl at my favorite glass and pottery shop. Really, it's the only one I know of around here, but that sounded good.
This is called tack fusing and it is really easy to do. So easy in fact that I think I want to try full fusing next. With full fusing you just add another piece of glass on top, fire it at a higher temperature and viola, you have a smooth piece that is beautiful.
I am having so much fun with this that I want to do about a dozen more pieces. I have more ideas than I have the money to make them. Want to hire me to make you something cool, or beautiful? You get a great piece, and I get to have a creative outlet. Win Win :)
I took the pictures a couple of different ways trying to figure out which way is up. I think I like it this way the best. What do you think?
I hope my BFF Samantha will like it, it is her Christmas present. Shhhhh don't tell her.
