I just finished making this unique glass plate. It was a lot of fun to create. My first plan for this glass plate was to fuse 2″ squares of the glass with the yellow and blue stripes. However, after I cut the squares out and put them next to each other — each one turned 90 degrees from the neighbor — I changed my mind. The layout looked just fine, but I thought it needed more. I separated each square and I liked the look of that better. My next idea was to add another 2″ square on top of the others and turn each of them 90 degrees to get the cross hatch. I picked out a blue translucent glass for the border and I was much happier with the design.
There is a lot of texture to this glass plate, because of the two layers of squares fused to two layers of clear. I also love the bubble design all around the border.
Let me know what you think of this glass plate!! I love to get comments!!
