Square Kiln Formed Glass Plate
This BEAUTIFUL glass plate has an alternating triangle pattern and it was handmade using the Murrini method. The plate was created using translucent and opalescent glass, and is sure to liven up any table top! This plate can be used as a display piece, or as a serving tray. It is food safe but should be hand washed.
TECHNIQUE: Crafted over multiple firings, this piece starts as sheet glass cut into strips and fused together into a patterned bar in a kiln. this bar is sliced into pieces called murrini and the pattern is revealed in the cross section of each piece. These murrini are fused together again in the kiln forming a plate and is fully fused into one piece. After cooling, the edges of this piece are ground by hand and fine-tuned. Finally the glass is laid into, or on top of a mold and heated just to the point where it “slumps” or moves with gravity when it becomes fluid with the heat, to fit the form of the mold.
DIMENSIONS: 6-1/4" x 6 1/4"
