Lunch plate - Orange poppy
A transparent orange poppy on a clear base - the perfect plate for lunch, dessert or on which to serve your favourite cookies or hors d'oeuvres.
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: 7.75" x 7.75" (.5" deep)
How it was created: The orange poppy lunch plate was created by laying a piece of clear glass on the kiln shelf for the base and topping it with transparent orange leaves. Opaque frit was added to the centre and all the layers were fused together slightly under a full fuse so that the daisy has a soft dimension to it. The next day the fused piece was put in an round 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.
