Web Description: 
In the 1970s, Warren was one of many artists who experimented with slumping sheet glass over wire to create alternative forms for glass. She denies the function of the vessel by making a structure that cannot really contain anything. The bowl reflects the spontaneity of hot glass by freezing motion, and the thin, tangled wires emphasize its fragility.
