A plate....My process

This is a new commissioned piece for a young woman who just celebrated her Bat Mitzvah. The colors were inspired by her beautiful custom silk tallit.

The background glass is actually a transparent iridized turquoise base, 11.5"x 11.5". The center is a 7.5"x 7.5" piece of dichroic glass. Strips of clear have been cut to frame the dichroic center. It's in the kiln for it's first firing. I'm assuming that the seams will show when I check it in the morning. If so, I will do a "flip and fire" so the glass has a chance to flow and spread a bit. That should hide the seams. 

Friday, I'll add decorative elements. New photos will follow.
