Sushi plate - Free as a bird 1
Magnificent waves, spectacular sky and a "free as a bird" feeling flies off this sushi-shaped serving plate –perfect for cheese & crackers, cookies, bread, sushi, even for your lunch or just to admire and enjoy.
You can read more about my inspiration for this piece in my blog here.
I suggest that you wash all Glass by Charis by hand. It is food safe.
Putting it in the microwave is not recommended.
Size: 5.75" x 9.75" (1.5" deep)
How it was created: The "Free as a bird" sushi plate was created by laying a rectangular piece of clear glass on the kiln shelf. The clear glass was topped with a rectangle of Fusers Reserve teal and white glass. The bird design was made by cutting pieces of copper foil and placing them between the two sheets of glass. It was fused in the kiln, then slumped in an 6"x10" rectangular mold in the kiln for another day.
My process often adds bubbles in the glass and no piece is perfectly round or square, adding to its appeal.
Fusing glass, often in several layers, results in items that may seem surprisingly heavy when first unpacked.
