Size: 8.5" x 8.5" (.75" deep)
How it was created: The "Pink hearts" lunch plate was created by laying a piece of white glass and a rectangle of pinked streaked glass on the kiln shelf for the base and topping it with clear glass. The hearts were created using hand-crushed pink glass on top. The piece was then fused in the kiln. 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.
