This fused glass platter is a divided serving platter with three sections – two sections for serving crackers or vegetables and a small round section to hold a bowl with dip. There are some interesting layers of glass in this platter. On the bottom is a layer of clear glass and above that is a layer of Royal Glass, available only at Delphi, which has a layer of pearlescent gold and copper non-toxic material applied on one side of the glass. Unfortunately, in this photo you really can’t see the copper and gold pearlescence in the middle layer very well.
The very top layer consists of a sheet of special Bullseye collage glass that I bought on my trip to the factory last fall. It has green stringers, flakes of green confetti and very large chunks of red frit that to me appear as holly branches, leaves, and berries. I thought this unique glass would be a very fitting combination for a decorative holiday serving platter.
I haven’t listed this platter in the store yet because the bowl that completes the set is not finished yet. As soon as that comes out of the kiln, I’ll post the pair in the store. In the meanwhile, I thought you might enjoy seeing the parts as they get made.
