“Seconds” – Handmade fused glass pink & red chequered serving platter
Price is for 1 x Tray
Why is this reduced price? This is a “seconds” item, which is considered to have a small imperfections. On this piece there is black mark in between the glass on one of the red squares (see photo).
These platters have been made with alternating hand cut glass squares and arranged neatly into a chequered pattern with a layer of clear glass on top and fused together flat in the kiln to just over 800°c. The glass is then placed back into the kiln and slumped into a platter shape making it beautiful and eye catching.
Having the layer of clear glass on top, makes the inside smooth, glossy and completely food safe, but does cause some natural small air bubbles to form which I think adds to the affect of being handmade. Please see the product photo for an example. If however you only want to use these for decoration only (not for food usage), then I can make these with the clear glass on the bottom so no bubbles are visible – just drop me a message.
