The Blue Island Glass Plate was a lot of fun to make. First I cut strips out for the borders and I even mitered the corners for a smooth border. Then I placed the border over two layers of clear glass. The final addition was the square in the middle. I fused the whole thing face down and when it came out of the kiln, I needed to grind the edges. So, I did a fire polish with plate face up and then slumped it.
I have made some smaller versions of this plate. I was working my way up in size as I learned from each glass plate and how they turned out.
How do you like it?
