Portfolio Platter - Aqua vine
Stunning transparent aqua glass showcases a vine relief pattern in this platter while bouncing rich colour across the table .
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: 8.25" x 12" (1" deep)
How it was created: The "Aqua vine" platter was created by laying one rectangle of clear glass on the kiln shelf and topping it with transparent aqua glass. It was fused in the kiln and then slumped in an rectangular tile mold. This piece was in the kiln for two 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.
