It is perfect for presenting cheese, charcuterie, fruit, or desserts when you entertain, and it immediately changes into a distinctive piece of home decor when not in use. Whether you’re adding to the ambiance of your own home or searching for the ideal gift for a special occasion, this tray is guaranteed to be a treasured addition to any equestrian’s home.
Creating it was a 5-step process.
Selecting the Glass: First, two pieces of glass were cut to the dimensions of the finished piece, one rich gray and the other clear.
Creating the Design: The boot pattern was created using a process called “powder printing”. Finely ground, russet-colored glass (known as powder frit) was sifted onto the gray glass using a stencil created on my laser cutter. After carefully lifting the stencil, stray russet frit was removed from places it did not belong. With this stage completed, the gray glass was carefully placed on top of the clear glass in preparation for fusing.
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.
Applying the Feet: As a final step, four, round, stainless steel feet were glued to the bottom of the tray.
