Portfolio Platter - Dichroic millefiori
Using different colours of transparent glass with flower-shaped millefiori and dichroic glass makes this a stunningly colourful plaid platter.
I suggest that you wash all Glass by Charis by hand. It is food safe.
Putting it in the microwave is not recommended.
This dish can be seen at Mikreations Art and Frame Gallery in Niagara-on-the-lake.

How it was created: The "Dichroic millefiori platter" was created by laying one rectangle of clear glass on the kiln shelf and topping it with pieces of transparent, dichrocic and flower-shaped millefiori glass. It was then fused in the kiln. It was then slumped in an 14"x9.5" rectangular 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.
