Platter - Red and yellow with puff balls
Whimsical puff balls ponder the question of what lies on the other side.

I suggest that you wash all Glass by Charis by hand. It is food safe.
Putting it in the microwave is not recommended.
Size: 14.25" x 9.675" (.875" deep)
How it was created: The "Red and yellow with puff balls platter" was created by laying one rectangle of clear glass on the kiln shelf and topping it with pieces of transparent red and yellow glass. I then add hand-crushed opaque pink glass to create the puff balls and stringer for the stems. The piece was then fused in the kiln and 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.
