The first step in creating this beautiful glass heart dish was cutting, stacking, and fusing a layer of Orange wispy art glass, abstract dichroic palm trees, dichroic flakes, and a layer of compatible clear glass on top to protect the dichroic and create a smooth and easy to clean surface.
The process of fusing glass can trap tiny air bubbles between the layers. This does not affect the structural quality of the piece but adds uniqueness to each one and is often an intentional design component.
After the first firing the glass is cleaned, inspected and coldworked. Then the piece is fired again at a lower temperature and slumped over a mold to give it the correct shape.
Dichroic Glass is a multi layer coating placed on glass by using a highly technical vacuum deposition process.
Quartz Crystal and Metal Oxides are Vaporized with an electron beam gun in an airless vacuum chamber and the vapor then floats upward and attaches then condenses on the surface of the glass in the form of a crystal structure.
