Danish Warmblood Breed Symbol Catch-All Dish 4″
This bowl is part of our Breed Symbol Collection of equestrian art glass home decor. It is 4″ in diameter.
Creating the dish was a 5-step process. First two circles of glass were cut to the dimensions of the finished piece, one ivory and the other iridized clear. The Danish Warmblood breed symbol was created using a process called “powder printing”. Finely ground opaque plum colored glass (known as powder frit) was sifted onto iridized clear glass using a stencil created on my laser cutter. After lifting the stencil and removing stray glass powder, this circle was placed on top of the ivory circle. The two layers were placed in a kiln and heated to 1475 degrees, the temperature at which glass melts and the layers fused together. After fusing, the edge of the piece was ground to eliminate irregularities and it was fired one more time to 1425 degrees to melt the edge and “fire polish” the rim.
I hope you enjoy this versatile art glass piece. It comes with a display stand so you can enjoy it on its own. It can also be used as a paperweight, making it an ideal gift for anyone who works with papers under the ceiling fans that are so common in Wellington, FL.
Note: Other breed symbols can also be ordered.
