This was a curiosity which I never used much, having always preferred flowers. In case it's not clear in the photos, the bowl has 3 holes which are near the rim, opposing each other. Material is placed in the bottom of the bowl and the heated glass rod is pressed against it. I bought them off a forum member about 2 years go. I'd like to get 30$ flat OBO, which includes PP fees and shipping costs, within the USA. I'm always open to trades for whatever. The bowl is quite pretty, but it was hard to photograph without natural light and with my oafish lack of patience. If you fancy some higher quality photos then just ask and I'll take some.
