Portfolio Lunch plate - Red rose
A gorgeous red rose on a translucent white plate. A perfect plate for lunch, dessert or on which to serve your favourite cookies or hors d'oeuvres.
This piece was featured 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: 8.5" x 8.5" (.75" deep)
How it was created: The red rose lunch plate was created by laying a piece of translucent white glass on the kiln shelf for the base and topping it with clear glass. The rose was made from pieces of transparent red and green glass laid on top of the clear glass giving it a feeling of floating. The three layers were fused together slightly under a full fuse so that the rose has a soft dimension to it. 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.
