Art Glass Plate With Chopstix Glass & Purple Border 6″


This bowl is part of our Serendipity Collection of art glass home decor.
It is 6″ x 6″.

This is a stylish piece that makes a welcome addition to any home. Display it on the accompanying plate stand and admire the colors that change with the light, or use it to brighten your table as a small serving dish. Either way, this is a must-have addition for your home or a foolproof gift for a friend.

“Chopstix” is the name of the dramatic glass used in this piece. Manufactured by Bullseye Glass Co., it is clear glass on which black “stringers” (thin, round rods) are randomly affixed. Then the entire sheet, along with the stringers, is covered with a rainbow iridescent coating.The texture created by the rods has the effect of concentrating the coating, creating vivid colors in unpredictable patterns.

Creating the dish was a 3-step process:
Glass Selection & Assembly: A square of chopstix glass and a border of transparent dark purple glass were fitted together and covered with a 6″ square of clear glass.
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: To create the dish shape, 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.
