Handmade fused glass trinket bowl or soap dish - gold butterfly on cerise

Handmade  fused glass trinket bowl or soap dish - gold butterfly on cerise

Description

This glass trinket bowl was fused by me in my studio. The glass was heated up to around 800 degrees celsius in a small glass fusing kiln. It was then brought to annealing temperature to make it strong. I was then returned to the kiln to fire the metal decal on. Any sharp edges were smoothed by my grinder and the glass then slumped to create a bowl shape. This whole process takes over 22 hours to complete.
This square trinket bowl was a happy accident. I had put in my kiln what I thought was a piece of delicate transparent lilac glass with the aim of adding a gold seahorse but when I opened the kiln I found a gorgeous jewel-like raspberry pink! It was obviously a striker glass which changed colour on heating. So instead of the seahorse I added a pretty gold butterfly.
The dish has a transparent cerise base with a butterfly design and is approximately 10cm across. Please note that this is not a sticker but a real gold glass decal.Though designed as a trinket bowl, it might also make a good soap dish. An ideal present for someone you love.

Not suitable for children - this is made from real glass and needs to be treated with respect - it may have sharp edges if broken. It is, however, made from thick annealed glass so is fairly robust for everyday use.

Inspiration

This was a happy accident and I'm very pleased with the colour - must buy some more transparent glass.
