Hanoverian Trinket Dish on Iridescent Gold Glass
This small bowl is part of our Breed Symbol Collection of equestrian home decor. It measures 3″ x 3″.
Creating it was a 5-step process. First, two squares of glass were cut to the size of the finished dish and stacked, with gold iridized glass over clear. The Hanoverian Warmblood breed symbol was hand-painted on the top layer of glass using charcoal grey enamel paint. The glass was placed in a kiln and heated to 1475 degrees, the temperature at which glass melts and the layers fused together. One more firing was required to transform it into a dish. To do this the fused square was placed in the kiln on top of a mold and was heated to 1250 degrees. At this temperature the glass softened, and gravity caused the square to sink into the mold and assume its final shape.
I hope you enjoy this versatile, one-of-a-kind, art glass piece. Use it to hold jewelry, change, or keys. Put a small candle or decorative soap in it. Use it to serve dips and small food items. Or put it on a stand and simply enjoy the play of colors. It makes a lovely gift for anyone with a special affinity for Hanoverian sport horses, but would be extra special for a friend who recently purchased (or lost) a Hanoverian horse. Or collect all our breed dishes for a truly special display. Note: More breed symbol dishes are planned. If there is one you pine for, let us know, and we’ll bumb it to the top of this list.
