    Thought this was very cool as well as attractive. It has a nice retro feel but it's probably not a 60's piece. From what I understand each square is layered with pieces of glass and then fused together in the glass furnace. Kind of like baking a pizza. It melts together making this wonderful slightly raised mosaic pattern. Some of the squares have metallic glass that sparkles but it doesn't show up too well in the pictures. This plate measures 10" x 10" and has a white glass background. The back side has a pebble like texture and looks like it was formed in a mold to create it's upturned shape. -Mike-

      Possible... I came across a few places that offered these in glass making classes in my research.

      Interesting. I made a similar design at a local make your own class store "Arts of Fite". The glass is stacked as you described. Each piece is held in place with Elmers glue, then fire to fuse them together. Then fired again with a mold to create the shape, "slump" you want. Fun to do.
