A fused glass charger and matching coasters add vibrant color to any decor
A fused glass charger with matching coasters add vibrant color to any decor. I created these pieces for a home with an ocean view. The home’s interior uses the neutral colors of sand and waves. The warm, tropical colors of the fused glass charger and coasters offer a bold counterpoint. The organic swirls and eddies of my hand raked glass make these pieces truly one of a kind.
The large charger (20 inch diameter) is prominently placed on a clear glass table-top. The cobalt blue draws from the home owner’s accent pieces with the various hues of green echoing the bromeliads, orchids and palms that are growing in the space. They provide a contrasting foundation for the the bold yellows, oranges, reds and purples of the charger. The design is an abstraction of a plant form. The set of twelve coasters were an opportunity for me to explore the colors and shapes of the charger. Each coaster is a unique expression of these elements. The carry the vibrant colors and organic shapes out into the room.
I drew inspiration from the home owner’s art and decor in order to create unique pieces of useable art for the space. The client described the colors of the pieces and “intensely happy… mesmerizing” and the coasters like jewels spread throughout the room. The fused glass charger and matching coasters bring vibrant tropical colors into a home on the ocean’s edge.
