Bowl/plate - Red butterflies
Painstaking and precise arrangement of multi-coloured frit sets these butterflies in flight in this serving dish.
I suggest that you wash all Glass by Charis by hand. It is food safe.
Putting it in the microwave is not recommended.
This dish can be seen at Mikreations Art and Frame Gallery in Niagara-on-the-lake.
Or you can buy it from this website and have it shipped to you.
Size: 9.75" (1.375" deep)
How it was created: The "Red butterflies" bowl was created by placing a piece of clear glass on the kiln shelf. A piece of transparent red glass was placed on top of the clear. The design was created using hand-crushed opaque glass on top. It was fired in the kiln at a full fuse. More glass was added twice more to make the design just how I wanted it to be and it was fired again each time. The fused piece was slumped in a round bowl mold. This piece was in the kiln for four 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.
