This handmade fused glass trinket plate is made from real Japanese Maple leaves. The leaves were picked from my tree, carefully placed on the white art glass, then outlined by hand in fern green glass. The plate was then fused and formed in 2 overnight fusings in my kiln. This plate is perfect for decoration by itself, or when used for holding rings, jewelry, candies, or nuts. This artful 5 inch square plate is food safe, but should not be put in the microwave or dishwasher.
