Fun, bright and elegant this platter is perfect for special occasions or just a cheerful welcome at the end of the day. Jewel tone pieces of transparent glass float above an iridescent base.

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" x 7.5" (.875" deep)
How it was created: The "Jewel tones" platter was created by laying a rectangle of iridescent glass on the kiln shelf and topping it with a rectangle of clear glass and then small squares of coloured transparent glass. A few swirly pieces are placed on top. It was fused in the kiln and then slumped in an 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.
