Portfolio lunch plate - Imagine the universe
Vibrant colours explode across this origami-style plate causing one to reflect on the mysteries of the universe. A perfect plate for lunch, dessert or on which to serve your favourite cookies or hors d'oeuvres.

I suggest that you wash all Glass by Charis by hand. It is food safe.
Putting it in the microwave is not recommended.
Size: 8.75" x 8.75" (.875" deep)
How it was created: The "Imagine the universe" lunch plate was created by laying a piece of clear glass on the kiln shelf for the base and topping it with vanilla glass. The universe was made by adding hand-crushed glass on top. The three layers were fused together. The next day the 8.5" square fused piece was put in an oragami-shaped plate mold and fired 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.
