Vortex Glass Plate is an Original Fused art work.
This beautiful, vibrant “painting in glass” is created with an asymmetrical arrangement of rich variegated pink tiles. The resulting pattern evokes a sense of movement around an imaginary axis, reminiscent of the flow of water in a vortex.
Vortex glass plate has been created using two layers of 3mm standard float glass. This is decorated with pink “Streaky Opal” Vidriarte glass tile details and the layers have been fired in a kiln to gently melt and fuse the elements together. The plate has been fired in a very shallow curved mould to create a smooth and slightly curved plate with a smooth surface texture and beautiful, fine “champagne bubbles” throughout the finished item.
The nature of the firing process and materials used creates a truly unique piece with characteristics that cannot be replicated, however similar products can be created to order if you require different dimensions.
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: 10¼ in x ⅜ in | 260 x 6mm
The plate is made using ordinary glass and has a smooth surface which makes it perfectly safe for use as a normal plate, subject to the usual care you would give any glass items. 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!
