I talked with a scientific glassblower friend, Sally Prasch, who told me she sometimes decorates petri dishes (and other scientific glass).

This may be a fairly recent development because colored borosilicate glasses have become readily available now.

If you wish to talk with Sally, she is listed on the "Find a Glassblower" page, under the Northeast:
