Over the past few weeks, I’ve been working on another batch of medium sized (9 inches) fused glass intention plates. I took some time this morning to take photos of the plates for both the AMusinGlass store and this blog. The Health intention plate is made from a Kelly green glass on the bottom, a silhouette of a woman in a yoga pose cut out of copper mesh in the middle, and a top sheet of mint and lavender streamer glass. The opaque green glass in the lower left houses the Health intention for the plate. The yoga pose that the woman is holding is called Dancer’s Pose. It seemed an appropriate embellishment for a health plate, as it is a fun pose that is also easy (for me, anyway).
The Abundance intention plate was made with iridescent blue glass on the bottom, a ring of flowers cut out of copper foil in the middle, and a top sheet of blue frit and streamer collage glass. The opaque blue glass in the upper right houses the Abundance intention for the plate. The colors that the copper foil changed to in the heat of the kiln were quite striking. There is a wide range of color from bright red to a deep burgundy that looks almost black in different lighting conditions.
These plates would be great not only for gift giving, but also for use as a Feng Shui element in a home. Their saturated colors would work well to add the proper color to a corner of a room to balance energy and flow. There is a great website I found that talks about different Feng Shui tips and treatments for the home. The plates have energetic component of their own that will enhance the properties of their use as a Feng Shui element, especially when used in the Health or Finance areas of the home.
