|Sharks vomit plate 1 with hole|
Being a big one for getting it right at least once, I decided to spend 4 hrs of my time yesterday to make up another fusing plate using my murrini again. This time I tried to stick with half decent murrini (ie, not too many clear inclusions etc.) although they are still my rejected ones, I made sure they were as tightly packed as I could get them. I even pulled some little stringer sized murrini to pop down the gaps and it really paid off. The glass did not move around very much at all and the fuse came out lovely. I slumped it late last night and got this beauty out of the kiln this arvo and now have a cute little square plate..... I love it!!!!

I have now got a kiln full of "testers" that I will see how they look when they come out before I think of using them in a larger plate size. The handy thing is that I will be able to glue on some bails and voila.... instant pendant. Hopefully they won't be too ugly to be worn and if they are, well I will keep them or donate them to someone who seed beads cabs or something fun like that.
