Portfolio Bowl/pasta plate - Wild flowers
A dreamscape of wild flowers, sea and sky coalesces on this large serving platter/bowl.
I suggest that you wash all Glass by Charis by hand. It is food safe.
Putting it in the microwave is not recommended.
Size: 12.75" (1.5" deep)
How it was created: The "Wild flowers pasta plate" was created by laying two circles of clear glass on the kiln shelf and topping it with multiple colours of hand-crushed opaque glass. It was then fused in the kiln. I added more pieces of crushed glass two more times in order to get the effect I wanted and fused the plate again both times. Finally it was slumped in an 15" round mold. This piece was in the kiln for four 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.
