This brings up an interesting paradox. I have often ended up putting the most interesting grain feature such as a crotch flame or branch cap on the bottom of a bowl. Sometimes I just want to hang it on the wall. I also realize that once the bowl is put to use and anything is placed in it, the prime beauty is essentially gone.
Rob, your solution is perfect.

Wouldn't there always be a void under the glass? The lead would be in contact with the wood bottom. Would floating the stained glass on a puddle of epoxy be an option? no voids.


That would probably help,or that made me think of maybe just some clear silicone caulking underneath,to fill that void.It might end up  with a pretty thick bottom,with a wood disc,filler,then glass.
Now that made me think ,how about no wood disc under the glass, just turn the finished bowl over and pour a thick layer of clear resin over it,maybe over both sides of the glass?

Maybe Bert, I'm thinking the lead would be touching the wood and since I'm thinking the insert would be small, and the cut glass even smaller, there shouldn't be a problem unless someone wanted to use the bowl for a game of basketball.
