A perfect little catch-all plate for life's tchotchkes and knick-knacks that mimics a classic red gingham picnic blanket with a cute hand-painted ant detail. Don't worry, this little ant can't steal your snacks. 

This plate started with a custom-fused sheet of striped red and clear glass that I made in my home studio from carefully placed and fired 1mm stringers below a clear cap to maintain their rigidity. After fusing, the striped sheet was cut into 1" squares alongside other squares of white and red to create the gingham pattern before going back in the kiln to be fused into one single, flat plate with a clear cap. After that, I painted the small ant detail onto the plate, and back it went into the kiln for a polish firing. The plate was then fired a fourth and final time, slumped in a wavy mold to achieve its cute raised edges. A labor of love, this one!

Measures roughly 5" square. Signed and dated.

*Note, some glass colors contain lead or cadmium to achieve their beautiful saturation and tone. This design is clear capped per manufacturer suggestion to prevent or reduce lead or cadmium leaching in adherence to (and well below) FDA standards, and is thus considered food safe (learn more here). Paint is also graded for food safety after being fired. I recommend this plate as a catch-all dish, or for small snacks like pretzels, but it should not be exposed to prolonged heat that may degrade the glass over time. Do not microwave. Hand wash only. 

Glass is a slightly fickle photography subject, so note that colors and textures may appear slightly different in person than they do in the pictures.
