The highlight of this fused glass plate is the wise owl that adorns its surface. The body of the owl is a tone on tone spring green color. The body was made from a transparent green glass and opaque glass was used for the wings to give more of a 3D effect. Large eyes of white and black give this little guy a wise watchfulness and cute little toes and beak of orange make him complete.
This handmade plate was created by fusing up to five layers of glass. Each piece of the handsome bird was precisely cut and then shaped with a diamond bit grinder and then the pieces were arranged and fired in a kiln to approximately 1450 degrees. The pieces were fired just hot enough so that the pieces fully fuse together but that the texture of the different layers of glass still remains. This gives the bird a dimensional effect so that those big eyes and cute toes really stand out.
This art glass plate is a square shape that measures approximately 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches. It is a nice decorative accent for a table or shelf - or perhaps to use as a soap dish to add some humor to your bathroom.
All of my pieces are handmade in my studio which is located in Roswell, Georgia USA.
