Red Checkers Glass Plate is an Original Fused art work.
This beautiful, vibrant “painting in glass” is created with a series of rich variegated red tiles, reminiscent of a checkers board.
Red Checkers glass plate has been created using a delicate single layer of 3mm standard float glass. This is decorated with “Red Checkers”, created by adding red “Cathedral Glass”, Coloured stringers and Millefiori glass details and firing the plate in a kiln to gently melt and fuse the elements together. The plate has been slump fired in a shallow curving mould to create a smooth and slightly curved shape, with a dropped recess in the base.
The nature of the firing process and materials used creates a slightly irregular finish -the end result is a high gloss “kiln polished” plate, with slight texture around the red checkers, where the glass layers have tussled with each other during the firing process. These are truly unique characteristics that cannot be replicated, however similar products can be created to order if you require different dimensions or colours.
This plate has been designed to be decorative and would be at home in any location on a wall hanger or plate stand (or as a pot pourri or fancies dish if you prefer). When it is displayed backlit, however, the true beauty of the colours and the detail of the “painting” truly come to life.
Please note: Postage and Packing will be added at the point of sale, based on your location and the number of items purchased.
Plate size: 10¾ in x ⅜ in | 275 x 6mm
The plate is made using ordinary glass which makes it perfectly safe for use, subject to the usual care you would give any glass items, however food use is not recommended. It can be washed in hot soapy water to keep it sparkling clean, but I can’t guarantee it is dishwasher safe – do that at your own risk.
The nature of glass also makes it perfectly suitable for display in full sunlight without any risk of deterioration or premature ageing!
