This unusual handmade fused glass soap dish will add a note of style to any bathroom. The four copper starfish add to a seaside feel in the bathroom .
The soap dish is made from hand cut pieces of glass, assembled and fired in my kiln at home. I have used clear transparent glass together with copper oxide to create the sea and have cut out starfish from a copper sheet. This has been fused together to give a lovely glossy finish. Once fused the soap dish is then slumped in a second firing onto a ceramic mould to create a gentle curve.
The soap dish measures 15cm by 8cm and has two glass rods to prevent soap sitting in water. The glass is 6mm thick and has been annealed by holding it at a high temperature and cooling overnight for maximum strength. It would make a striking gift for a seaside lover.
