Amber and Silver Plate

Decorative Original Fused Glass Plate

20cm x 20cm

Dawid uses the process of Fused Glass, sometimes called Kiln Formed Glass to create his decorative glass plates.
Fused Glass is a general term for glass that has been ‘warm worked’ – the glass is worked hot enough to soften and combine several layers in to one but not hot enough for the glass to be blown.
Many materials can be placed between the glass sheets before firing Dawid uses metal oxides, chards or powdered coloured glass and pure silver. When fusing temperatures are reached, some of the ‘inclusions’ undergo a chemical reaction which causes changes in colour and appearance as you can see in some of Dawid’s pieces
