Catherine's parents were celebrating their ruby wedding.

She wanted to use lots of rich red glass and loved the thought of a rose design.  I put the two together and here is what I made.

Catherine emailed me after the bowl had arrived 
"Just wanted to let you know that the ruby bowl arrived today. As well as being massively impressed by your packaging, we are also massively impressed with the bowl and think it is just perfect. We can't thank you enough for all your hard work and patience."
Seems as if she liked it as much as I did!
