A lovely delicate wavy plate/dish. I dont know alot about glass but can see that there is a rough pontil mark so mouth blown? not sure how you would mouth blow something this shape??the colours are delicate swirls and there are quite a few bubbles in the glass. Any help appreciated :)

There are other videos available but basically they swing it around upside down until it achieves the size and shape required
