I’m always searching for new ways to make my bowls more special. The first ones called “Atlantis” had a wet, sometimes golden shimmer on them. “Lemuria” pieces had sparkling mosaic-like layers. Paititi is a series currently on hold (I only made one so far), which have a very dark patina look and now… “Avalon” is here.
They look similar to the other series. Aged, rough, with crystals. And while they look a lot like the Atlantis ones (which have a lot of white too), these bowls are more mossy and dirty. Like a bowl you would find in the forest. But once you turn off the light… that’s when the magic appears. These bowls GLOW in the dark.
For example this one. A mini bowl which looks pale white with teal by day, finished with lapis lazuli stones. But once you turn off the light, a gorgeous blue light appears. I’ve tried many glow in the dark paints over the years but not one of them could offer the glow I was searching for. So I made the glow medium myself. Also most glow in the dark products create a neon green. I don’t think a neon radioactive kind of green would be fitting for Avalon bowls… so blue it is!
These bowls are non-toxic, non-radioactive and because I make the medium myself, I can say they are vegan friendly too. Perfect for the night stand because, once charged (which only takes a few minutes), the glow lasts all night. Of course it totally depends on the light source. The stronger the source (Sunlight works too), the more vibrant the glow will be.
After Avalon came a new glow in the dark series. Similar in glow but in a different color scheme by day. I’ll share more about the other series in a new post.
