Volcanic Ash Dish
The glass chemists of Bullseye Glass, having had this base material rent from the earth deposited literally on their doorstep set out to formulate a glass based upon it. Then, in collaboration, artist Curtis Jewel was inspired to sculpt a commemorative rendering of the mountain in its newly modified shape.
The Mt. St. Helens form you see here is the result. Made of volcanic ash from the fallout, fused at 2600°F to form volcanic glass, and hand-cast in 1980 at Bullseye Glass Co., Portland, Oregon.
Comes with original box from the 1980s.
Made in Portland, Oregon.
