This fused plate has two pieces of fusing glass with a number of coats of sifted glass powder, tack fused between each coat.
When working with powder, particularly on a dark background, it is necessary to build the colors up in layers to prevent the base color showing through the powder.
In this plate red fusing glass is topped with a piece of black to which the powder is added, tack fused, stringers added, fully fused and then slumped in a glass slumping mold.
Colors and size can be altered to suit mold size.
It can also be made as a flat coaster, this type of design will produce some brilliantly colored pieces.
