Fused glass and transfer handmade glass plate. These pieces are functional as well as beautiful to look at.You can use to serve food, fruit, vegetables, cheese, etc. or choose to display the piece in your home (or do both like I do!). Although you can put these pieces in the dishwasher, I suggest you hand wash them to preserve the beauty. I have also made dinnerware which is so beautiful that even if you serve lousy food noone will care because the dishes are so gorgeous.
