Description

Ideal for the bee lover who needs somewhere safe for earrings, necklaces etc.

A small fused glass trinket dish – bright yellow border (and back) with a white centre with a darker yellow honeycomb pattern. This pattern was created with glass powders of 2 different shades of yellow – and then fused to a smooth surface. The bee was created in glass separately and then tack fused (not glued) onto the dish and it was shaped into a gentle curve (see photo). The bee is smooth to the touch but is raised.

Dimensions:
Length: 9 cm
Width: 7,5 cm
Max height: 1.5 cm

Care: Handwash when needed.

Hi! I’m Kate and I’m a part-time glass artist from Desford, Leicestershire. I have been glass fusing now for over 4 years and have a small studio space at home.
For me, glass is addictive – the colour and the way that light sends patterns through it. There is nothing quite like the feeling of opening the kiln lid – and it worked! It doesn’t always but you can always ‘make lemonade from lemons’ and recycle the glass – even the tiniest piece can be used.
The glass I use comes, mainly, as sheet glass which is then cut (by hand and sometimes saw) but I also use glass powder, glass frit (coarse powder – think caster sugar up to seasalt in size) and murrini (specially shaped very small glass pieces created by very talented people).

I tend to make either geometric pieces (my ‘other’ job is teaching maths) or nature (my other love). No piece will ever be identical to another even if I use the same colours – but you will get the piece in the photo. This is why there is only ever ‘one available’.
I hope my glass brings colour and a smile into your home- and that you will be able to enjoy it for years to come. If you are gifting, then I hope it makes them smile too.
