This Excellence fused glass intention plate to the left is the first I’ve made in the new 12″ size. It was made with brown glass and features a large horse and rider embellishment cut from copper mesh in the center of it. At the moment, I’m rather entranced with Western themes, so I thought that the rodeo rider would make a wonderful embellishment for the Excellence intention.
The copper mesh embellishment darkened in the kiln to a deep red that I find very attractive in this plate. This intention plate really needs to have some light coming from the back of it to beautifully showcase the embellishment, as you can see from the photo. I chose this particular combination of brown glass on the bottom with a lightly tinted orange glass (named Orange Sorbet) on top because the final result comes very close to the chestnut color of many quarter horses found here in America. Finding glass that echoes colors of other horses, such as palomino, is rather challenging, I found.
You can find this (as well as many other) intention plates for sale in the AMusinGlass store, if you’d like to add the energy of Excellence to your home or office space. If you’re into Feng Shui and need to add a Wood or grounding element to a space, this plate would certainly hit the mark. It would work best in an East (Health & Family), Southeast (Wealth & Abundance), or South (Fame & Reputation) location. Brown has a nourishing feng shui energy, and it recently came back into home decor in rich tones associated with yummy dark chocolate, gourmet coffee and beautiful mahogany wood.
