The cane slices on this bowl are a variation of the "bull's-eye" motif, here in a complex and sophisticated floral pattern. The high temperature during fusion caused the canes to melt partially and become misshapen, creating a composition in which the green and yellow ran into each other while the central red flower remained clearly defined. This bowl is the largest extant intact example of a mosaic glass vessel.
