Once in a Blue Moon... Fused Iridescent Dichroic Blue Moonface Plate
$90.00 Sold out
This listing is for my fused glass interpretation of the old saying, "Once in a blue moon..."
The 'Once in a Blue Moon' plate is 8" in diameter. It has a gentle scalloped texture throughout. It's pictured hanging on the wall on a black scrolled display stand.
I used a gorgeous transparent peacock blue for the base of the plate, and the moon was made with the beautiful rainbow iridized white opal. For the lips I used a piece of crinklized dichroic glass in green magenta blue for the lips. The crinklized dichroic glasses have a 'crystal' look to them that's great looking and fun to touch. I used a blue violet black dichroic for the eyes and then added the 24k gold accents. Dichroic glasses are really interesting because they have what is called reflective and refractive colors. Depending upon how you view the piece the dichroic glass will be a different color. Using the rainbow coatings for the moon, lips and eyes really enhanced the dichroic colors!
The display stand is included with the plate.
