Portfolio platter - Wild flowers on a fence
This charming platter would be a treasure for anyone who has dreamed of their own white picket fence, complete with a wild flower garden.
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" x 9.675" (.875" deep)
How it was created: The "Wild flowers on a fence platter" was created by laying two rectangles of clear glass on the kiln shelf and topping it with multiple colours of hand-crushed opaque glass. It was then fused in the kiln. I added more pieces of crushed glass three more times in order to get the effect I wanted and fused the plate again each times. Finally it was slumped in an 14"x9.5" rectangular mold. This piece was in the kiln for five 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.
