Sushi plate - Puppy paws
A fun piece for the dog lovers in our midst – perfect for cheese & crackers, cookies, bread, sushi, even for your lunch or just to admire and enjoy.
You can read 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 "Puppy paws" sushi plate was created by laying a rectangular piece of transparent green glass on the kiln shelf. The glass was topped with opaque lime and transparent brown glass and fused in the kiln. The next day white white pieces were added to create the paw prints, then slumped in an 6"x10" rectangular mold in the kiln for another day. This piece was in the kiln for three days.
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.
