This dish is a gorgeous mix of blue and green, opal and transparent glass. Fused together in a gorgeous pattern, it reminds us of a rainforest canopy, hence its name. A truly stunning, visual piece.
The piece is made using a variation on the ‘pattern bar’ technique. Glass is stacked in mixed widths, on top of a triangular mould. The headwork causes the glass to ‘drip’ down into the mould, creating a gorgeous mix of swirling, vibrant colour. The resulting block is then cut into pieces and reassembled in the kiln, forming a pattern, and fully fused. Dishes created this way will never be the same, therefore this piece is well and truly, one-of-a-kind.
Measures approx 19cm x 19cm.
