BirthPlate - 12 inch Iridescent Plate, Solar System + Your Date
Your special date, be it your birthday, the birth of your child, your wedding date, the signing of the MagnaCarta... A date you love, memorialized in glass. 12 inch plate with iridescence, each planet orbit etched and the planets placed around the sun, as they appeared in the universe on your special date. The Sun, 8 planets, plus Pluto (and even an asteroid belt! LOL). This one shows my own birthday. Yours would be inscribed with what the date is ("Johnnies Birthday", "Wedding of Mark and Susan", "Misty Muffins Gotcha Day", "Albert Einstein's New Job", etc...) and the date itself, fired into the glass forever. Put the inscription info, and the date you want, in the comments on your order.
Of course, since these are handmade, one at a time, by one singular chick in a studio surrounded by kitties, the exact sizes are approximate. I don't use a mold, nor do I use a pack of non-paid sweatshop workers. Each is individual, made with love, just for you and will be unique in the entire universe! Since each is made specifically for your own date, it will take several days or so for the creation to be complete. Cancellations/refunds can be made up until the final kiln firing when the planets and inscription are placed.
All iridescence, planets, etching, and inscriptions are kiln fired into the glass to create a solid piece that is dishwasher and food safe. I would recommend NOT microwaving though. The planets curve up slightly from the flat of the plate. The plate is molded to have a 2 inch rim.
All of our pieces are created in our smokefree island glass studio in the wilds of Washington state. Since each piece is created by hand, by us. If you like the style, but the colors aren't what you're looking for, drop me a line and we can work with you to create what you'd desire.
