Playful sailboats skim across the surface of a lazy blue river. Sweet and fun, this parted-square dish is the perfect size to serve your favourites foods at the next festive occasion.

I suggest that you wash all Glass by Charis by hand. It is food safe.
Putting it in the microwave is not recommended.

How it was created: The "Parted-square dish - Lazy river sails" was created by placing a square of clear glass on the kiln shelf topped with a square of blue wavy Fusers Reserve glass. The boats and birds were cut from pieces of opaque coloured glass and placed on top. It was fired in the kiln to a full fuse, then fired one more time to perfect the design. I then slumped the resulting flat square in a mold. This piece was in the kiln for three 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.
