Dining Table Top Insert Of Raked Fused Glass: Ocean

This is a custom fused glass dining table top insert. The customer wanted a piece that made her think of the ocean. To accomplish this look, an ocean palette of colored glass was arranged on a clear iridized blank and then heated to 1700 degrees. When the glass achieved a near molten stage, I opened the kiln (turning it off first!) and raked across the surface to create the organic, ocean-like swirls and eddies. The raked glass was then fired atop a new clear blank to soften the colors and insure uniform thickness and durability. The circle was sized and a final fire polishing was done in the kiln.

The client is having a table top built that will have a circle cut out of the center. The fused glass piece will sit atop a lighting fixture that is in the central pedestal of the table. The end result will be a table with an ocean view!

Approximate dimensions: 12" diameter

    Michelle was great, prompt communication and answers to my questions. The glass, shipped from Hawaii to Vancouver arrived intact and on time.
    She created exactly what I was looking for and I would definitely use her again for another project.
