How it was created: The "Tulip parade platter" was created by laying one rectangle of clear glass on the kiln shelf and topping it with opaque ivory glass. Tulip shapes and stems were cut and arranged 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.
