My Fused Glass Dishes

I have a myriad of fused glass artwork in my house, however I don’t have fused glass dishes for food. I have wanted to make some for quite some time. Finally, I decided to make dishes for myself. The first type of dishes I made are dinner plates. I made beautiful amber bowls for a restaurant, so I used the amber glass and the same texture. I didn’t want just plain square so I love the rectangle shape. I wish you could see how truly cool these pieces are.

I also wanted small little dishes, I used blue and ivory to represent the blue of Colorado Skies and the ivory of our mountains. The blue and white I made them both exactly the same. Then I used ivory and green to represent the green of our trees. I decided to make the green and white different sizes of each. I think they really complement one another.

I also wanted a couple serving dishes. This first one is a platter with a rim, this picture doesn’t come close to showing the rim or beauty. It’s the same blue I used in my small dishes, but I added iridized then I put it on a texture with shells and starfish? Why did I use this texture may you ask? Two reasons one the iridized made me want to have a unique texture and second I’m from Florida and I love the beach.

The next serving dish is a deep bowl (again I’ve used this bowl for one of the restaurants I create for), this one I used the leaves mold and amber to represent the Colorado Aspen trees. Isn’t it amazing! I love these pieces. I just love this mold.

I’d love to hear what you think of my dishes. I will probably make a few more. I like the spiral texture so I may make something with that texture. What else should I make?
