Portfolio sushi plate - Autumn winds
As for so many, fall is my favourite season. The colours, the smell, crisp air, the movement of the wind in leaves. This rich toned plate conjures up all those images. Perfect for cheese & crackers, cookies, bread, sushi or just to admire and enjoy.
You can read more about the inspiration for this piece in my blog here.
I suggest that you wash all Glass by Charis by hand. It is food safe.
Putting it in the microwave is not recommended.
Size: 6" x 10" (1.5" deep)
How it was created: The "Autumn winds" sushi plate was created by laying a rectangular piece of transparent green glass on the kiln shelf. I topped the green glass with Fusers Reserve green/orange and swirly clear glass to create the design. It was fused in the kiln. Then it was slumped in an 6"x10" rectangular mold. This piece was in the kiln for three 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.
