I recently made this glass spoon rest. I love the black and white squares as the design element. I made a similar one about one year ago and it sold at the next Craft Fair I attended. I finally got around to making another one.
The black and white glass squares started out square, but during the fusing process, they rounded out a bit. I am glad that it does it — adds to the rounded edges of the glass spoon rest.
I used Spectrum 96 cherry red glass as the top layer and a clear piece on the bottom. I added the black and white squares and did a full fuse in the kiln. After that, I slumped it into a small spoon rest mold.
