Creating the dish was a 5-step process.
Glass Selection: First, two squares of glass were cut to the dimensions of the finished piece, one clear and the other opaque lavender.
Creating the Horses: The horses were cut from pure copper foil using a laser cutter.
Assembling the Design: The image was placed in position on top of the lavender glass and then carefully covered with the clear glass layer.
Fusing in the Kiln: The two layers were placed in a kiln and heated to 1475 degrees, the temperature at which glass melts and the layers fused together.
Shaping the Dish: At this point the piece was still square. To make it into a dish it needed one more firing. It went back into the kiln, this time on top of a mold, and was heated to 1250 degrees. At this temperature the glass softened and gravity caused it to sink into the mold and assume its final shape.
