Dark Violet Flower Head Trinket Dish
Fused glass trinket dish based on a flower head in a dark violet colour.
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)
