Buddhaful

Glossy and rich with color, this Buddha dish is made in the same way as a piece of stained glass. Artist Ellen Bartfeld first slumps the glass into various shapes in the kiln, then edges them with copper foil and lead-free solder, and finally embellishes them with 17 Amazonite, riverstone, and African turquoise beads and a smiling Buddha. Perfect for coins, rings, keys and more. Made in California.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Ellen Bartfeld

Stained glass has been part of Ellen Bartfeld's work as an artist for over 35 years. She loves the way the glass reflects natural light and compliments interior surfaces. Her glass bowls are one-of-a-kind pieces hand-crafted to reflect the natural beauty surrounding Gravity Ranch, the home her husband and she built in the remote hills of Santa Ynez.

Working alone, Ellen creates her glass bowls by slumping the glass into various shapes in the kiln, edging them with copper foil and lead-free solder, and embellishing them with decorative items. She also fires images into some of the bowls, using a gold or platinum luster. Beads of infinite variety adorn her bowls either alone or in combination with charms and images. collection

          Comments about BUDDHA DISH:

          The wire that connects the beads and buddah to the glass dish was not strong enough. Requested a replacement and when received replacement the wire was damaged again. Finally asked for a refund. I strongly DO NOT recommend this product.

                  Comments about BUDDHA DISH:

                  This is the second Buddha dish I've purchased for my daughter. Unfortunately the first did not survive the college move because it wasn't packed well enough, so she was thrilled when she received another for her birthday. It's very cute and the color is very vibrant. She uses it on her night table to hold her jewelry.

                        I was looking for a small, interesting jewelry dish to sit by the sink in my bathroom. This is perfect! The glass bowl is beautiful and the little Budda is adorable. Just the right piece for the right place!
