Portfolio Platter - Her flower garden
A profusion of blooms adorns this stunning platter, making a treasured gift for that special someone, or a treat for yourself.
I suggest that you wash all Glass by Charis by hand. It is food safe.
Putting it in the microwave is not recommended.
Size: 13" (.75" deep)
How it was created: The "Her flower garden" serving platter was created by laying a round circle of clear glass on the kiln shelf for the base and topping it pieces of opaque coloured glass cut in the shapes needed for the garden. It was fused in the kiln. I then capped the flat disc with another circle of clear glass and fused it. One more time I added more bits of glass and trimmed the shape to fit my mold and fused a thrid time. The round fused piece was put in a plate mold and fired for another day. The "Her flower garden" platter was in the kiln for four days in total.
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.
