'Sea Life' Fused Glass Platter
Rectangular fused glass platter.
There are two layers of glass in this piece. The base is transparent clear glass with transparent turquoise on top. It is fused together at this stage to a temperature of around 800 degrees centigrade.
I then place it on a textured ceramic mould which has all kinds of underwater sea life on it. This is fired again to enable the texture to transfer to the glass. The final firing is on a platter shaped mould with gentle curves.
The light reflects beautifully through the piece showing its translucence, look closely to see an abundance of tiny little 'champagne' bubbles which is a natural feature of fused glass.
Impress your dinner guests by serving up your prawns or fish on this delightful platter.
A stunning centerpiece on any table.
Dimensions are 25 x 18 cm approx.
