Winter Garden-Bohemian Blue Glass Plates

The kiln is humming with a new song! Glass, paint and texture come together in these little square accent plates. I love the simplicity of the design with depth and texture fused in deep. Can you see our red desert interpreted in these colors? It must be running in our veins.

Winter Garden-Blue Butterfly

Copper accents the terracotta border while cobalt blue compliments the deep orange of the Winter Garden design. The geometric pattern that runs through the plates adds deep textural dimmension.

The process is so fun and expressive my mind is whirling with ideas.

Sea Coral in Sunlight

Here’s another design using transparent glass that bounces the light around with silver foil inclusions. This amber and sea green coral looks like sunlight in motion.

Glass plates have so many possiblilties for interior design

Fused Glass Desert Sand Square Plate // organic art // glass plate by Mike Dumas Copper Designs.

Desert Sand Plate

The Desert Sand Square plate is an intensive piece to create that shows how organic glass really is. The pebbles look exactly like the river bed we cross when we hike the canyon with our dogs on the weekends.

You can use these plates for jewelry dishes, key containers in the entryway, or change dishes on the nightstand. These expressive plates would make great candy dishes on the coffee table, inviting guests to linger in this Season of Gathering.

Display plates as art on the mantel or an accent shelf. Watch how the changing light of the day moves through or reflects off from the glass making each changing light a new view.
