Gold Ruby Platter is handcrafted, and mouth-blown from molten glass. We gather the molten glass from 1100 degrees centigrade, where it sits, then it’s conjured out onto our pipe. Adding color, shaping and blowing, tooling. Reheating the glass all the while, thrusting it into the intense flame. A “Foot” is added and shaped, then we “puntie up”. The Cobalt Om Bowl is spun out which is amazing to see in person! Once the desired shape is reached, we “knock it off” and add our maker’s mark to the finish. It is put away to relax in 520 degrees Celsius heat- called the annealing process, which takes a further 12 hours. Each piece is lovingly created, to be as unique as you. A fabulous big size, making it perfect for the Christmas table.
Gold Ruby Platter was made by glass artists Faerie Fleur, and James Alexander in Tamborine Mountain. We love blowing glass and take great pride in creating such works for you. Do you want to know a little secret? Once you have tried glassblowing for yourself, you will see the magic that comes together in the moments of making your own piece. It really is exhilarating when you finish a piece and “get to put it away”.
We truly appreciate your support, Thank you.
