Polka Dots on Parade

This plate will definitely leave you seeing spots! The base is 3mm of 96 COE streaky cobalt capped with 3 mm of 96 COE icicle clear. On the top I added a mixture of sizes (1/2", 3/4" and 1") of a combination of dense white and opal white pebbles. The different types of white give you two different shades of white after firing, giving an additional sense of depth to the piece. I brought the plate blank (picture #2) to a full fuse and then finally did a slump fuse into a 12" x 1-1/4" shallow bowl mold. The final plate has a 10 inch diameter. Counting making the pebbles, this piece to a total of 3 firings.
