Set/4 LARISSA 8.5" BLUE SILVER PLATES
Larissa was a fairy from greek mythology who could animate the nature and was a divine spirit who would bring joy and happiness around her. The repetitive sign which creates the pattern is the fairy Venus's sign, which is the origin of the female sign we use today. This pattern is brought to you in several colors on this dessert plate to fit all table settings at your most exclusive dinner parties or to enhance the beauty of your home design.
Each piece is hand made using a spun glass technique. Once the glass has cooled down, the back of the glass is hand decorated. A patina paint is applied, followed by gilding the silver, gold or copper leaves on the surface. Once the surface is cleaned from metal leaf residues, the item is heat cured and the surface is layered with organic pigment in steps. As the metal layer soaks the paints in, all items are sealed with a special lacquer to assure its resistance to usage and heated for a final time to cure the item and penetrate all materials on the glass surface. Start to finish each one takes up to 3 hours to create.
