This unique fused glass plate may be used as decor or for serving. The glass for this plate came from a shattered glass shower door I rescued from being sent to the landfill. I selected shards and pieced them in a special fusing mold. It was fired at temperatures up to 1550 degrees in an 18 hour cycle. I have polished the edges and sanded the rough spots. The surface has smooth and frosted sections, depending on whether the “front” or “back” of the door was facing up in the mold. Internal “shading” is created by the amount of hard water on any given shard. This plate is approximately 16 x 1.5 inches Hand wash, not microwave safe Your plate will come to securely wrapped in bubble wrap to prevent damage.
