Chicago Flag 8" Slumped Platter8_chicago_flag
This platter features my graphic take on the Chicago flag, with four 6-pointed stars screen printed in red enamel onto wispy white-clear with opaque powder blue glass, then fused in a kiln to about 1400 degrees. After that, it is cold-worked on glass saws and grinders, then returned to the kiln to slump into a mold to about 1250 degrees.
It is screen printed, kiln formed glass, 8" square, about 1/4" thick and slumped into a sushi-style mold, making it about 1" high at the corners.
These make great wedding and housewarming gifts. Each tray comes in its own gift box, ready for wrapping. Uses for these include valet trays - great on a desk or by the front door, plates, small serving platters, and candle holders but they look equally fabulous on your table or hanging on the wall. They are food safe and while they are dishwasher safe (china cycle, please), we recommend hand washing (dishwasher detergent can etch glass over time, resulting in scratched and cloudy glassware).
