Took three tries, but I finally got this little plate to have a flat bottom so that it didn't wobble.  Took some changing in the slumping time and also how I set up the mold--(needed to be only on a post, not on a shelf).  It's hard to see, but there is an indentation in the middle of the plate.

On to the next project!

Oooo! Really like that you used the clear as a base and the yellow makes it pop. Smiley

Some of the fun with glass fusing is that you never know what you are really going to end up with until you yank it out of the kiln....  Make more stuff!  It is fun to see other people's work.

...So...This is what insanity must be like, I thought.....and I could kind of see the appeal.

You are so right!  I can't wait until the morning after a fuse.  Haha!
