Fused Glass Platter – 15 3/8″ dia. x 1 7/8″
From the first time our ancestors experienced wonder at the cool, smooth, reflective surface of volcanic obsidian, glass has captured our poetic imagination. This natural glass is formed by the rapid cooling of red hot silicate lava when it comes into contact with water, hissing, popping and cracking as it sets.
The birth of obsidian comes in the meeting place of fire and ice.
Our art glass is formed in the high-temperature kiln environment where the fusion of our designs occurs. Fire and Ice Studios creates a place for light to be magically captured to play.
Coupling artistic applications of art glass and metals, we create one-of-a-kind functional works of art.
