When we first saw this bowl, we took a double take. It was shaped like a Pyrex bowl, but that surely wasn't a familiar Pyrex design! Designer Carole Smith actually remade a vintage glass Pyrex bowl in ceramic! She cast a vintage glass Pyrex bowl in plaster, then slip cast it in clay, fired it, glazed it, and then finally decorated it with ceramic floral decals. Whew! She uses the same process for other thrift store finds including mugs and cake stands. And in her spare time, she make tiles!

Carole Smith's work can be purchased from etsy.
