Functional and Decorative Warm Glass Art
I am pleased to offer a new product that makes a perfect gift for parents, grandparents, caregivers, and teachers. I have devised a way to memorialize your child's hand print as an attractive glass plate. Using specialized glass enamel paint, I will make prints of one or both of your child's hands directly onto a piece of prepared fusing glass. These enamel paints are water-based, non-toxic, lead-free, and food safe once fired. The printing process should take about 15-30 minutes to complete.
Prints will be made using black paint onto white opaque glass. Several size and shape options are available. A coloured border may be added to any square or rectangular size. Additional design options may be available, so if you have something in mind, please ask me!
Once assembled, the piece will be fired in my glass kiln at my home studio. You may choose to leave the glass flat, or it can be formed (slumped) into a plate form, giving it a raised rim. I will contact you once the plate is finished, and you will be able to pick it up at my home studio.
