    Cut-glass Bowl

    Good friends loaned me two gorgeous, decorative bowls so I could photograph them. I started with the first bowl using a dark background. Rather than limit myself to depicting the bowl in the upright position that it is intended to be used, I also enjoyed making photos of it as viewed from various other angles.

    The bowl pictured in this thread is also the source of the Stark abstracts posted earlier.

    C&C is encouraged, though I don't have any questions to ask. Click the photos to avoid the moire effect.

    Mike, I believe you may be missing an image.

    Sorry about that, Paul. I was actually missing four images. I accidentally posted the thread before including any images.

    Thanks, Paul. Most of the color actually isn't being reflected. That's because the glass is being photographed within a black enclosure. Instead, the color is the result of prismatic refraction. The one exception is in the first photo when refracted color is being reflected in the tabletop made of a mirror.
