Cherry Red Large Fern Trinket Dish
Fused glass trinket dish based on holly fern leaves in a cherry red colour. Ferns are one my favourite leaves to use as they make such wonderful shapes.
Each piece is made by hand using actual leaves. Assembling all materials between two sheets of clear glass I use the leaves with a combination of copper oxide and glass powders, which are put into the kiln at temperatures above 800 degrees centigrade to produce the fused piece. The dish is then put over a mould back in the kiln and taken to temperatures above 700 degrees centigrade for the glass to relax into the shape of the mould.
Size: dishes measure 11cm (w) x 11cm (d) x 1.5cm (h)
