The intricate Incalmo Technique demands two glassblowers working on the same piece at the same time, each blowing a bubble of glass – one for the body and one for the attached rim. At a particular time, when the bubbles have been worked to the desired size, the two bubbles are joined while still hot. Once cooled in the annealing kiln, you can feel where the bubbles were joined together.
Each Incalmo Bowl we make is individual, and unable to be repeated – “even if we tried we wouldn’t be able to duplicate them’ – this makes each one unique and each differs due to the techniques used and the flow of the colours. The bowls are presented in a never ending range of colour combinations from blues and greens through to red, bright lime and bold black and white.
