This glass plate is part of a set of 3 matching plates (the fourth piece of glass didn’t make it through the kiln). The glass is called Black and Clear Baroque made by Spectrum. The glass is not tested for fusibility, so this kind of glass can’t be fused with other glass, not even other pieces of glass. It can be fused to itself, however. A single piece of glass can be cut up into all different shapes and sizes and then fused together, just don’t try fusing a separate piece of glass to another. Believe me, I tried it once and the glass was very brittle and started to crack right away.
I am working on creating sets of glass plates for people to use when entertaining guests. Not many people have their own handcrafted one-of-a-kind set of plates. I think I will make a set of plates for myself — not that I ever have any people to entertain 🙂
