Iridescent Turquoise Blue, Fused Glass platter with platinum embellished honey bees. 17 x 5 inch. Ideal for the center of the table. Lovely with candles, can be used for appetizers, bread or as an accent piece in any room.
This plate is made in a process called glass fusing whereby several layers of tested compatible glass are hand cut. Heated in a kiln to temperatures exceeding 1475 degrees F, then slowly cooled and polished. Next the glass is placed on a custom mold and heated again to around 1325 degrees F until the glass conforms to the mold.
Each piece is created by hand one at a time in my studio and signed and dated on the back. It is Food and dishwasher safe, although I recommend hand washing for all of my glass pieces.
