These photos are of three new intention plates I’ve completed. In this set are Freedom, with a bird shape cut from copper mesh as an embellishment; Creativity, with a dragonfly copper mesh embellishment; and It’s a dry heat!, with a chili pepper copper mesh embellishment. I was playing with some scraps of new glass that I had been using in larger artworks and wanted to try layering different colors with these new glasses to see the effects, and these new small plates are the results.
The new red and yellow streaky glass I used in the Freedom small intention plate is definitely one of my new favorites, as I think it looks great for flame colored backgrounds. The Freedom plate especially plays that look up nicely, appearing to me like a Phoenix rising from the flames.
The It’s a dry heat! plate isn’t intended to actually be an intention plate, I just made it for fun. I thought that the plate might go over well as a gift or souvenir at one of the local craft fairs in the area. I look forward to seeing how it sells there or in the store on the website.
Thanks for stopping by and checking the new work out!
