Maurice the Gnome is the most bold and forward of the gnomes. Curious to see what kinds of treats you have, you’ll often find him exploring the kitchen for snacks. Keep Maurice happily fed with sweets on the Maurice Gnome Plate.
Measuring approximately 6×6″, this fused glass plate is an ideal size to bring a little fun into your life. Maurice is often getting into mischief, so keep an eye on him if you can.
Maurice also hangs out in the Hangin’ with my Gnomies Window Panel.
How’s It Made?
Handcrafted from art glass, we create the Maurice Gnome Plate using multiple steps. First, we cut and polish the glass to the appropriate sizes. Each of the pieces are cut and shaped to fit, just like a piece of stained glass. The beard is created using thin individual glass stringers to add depth to the white glass. We fire the plate to a high temperature to smooth the surface of the glass.
Once the design is fired flat and has cooled to room temperature, it goes into the kiln once more for a slump firing. This means the temperature is only high enough to soften the glass, enough for it to slump over a mold. When the glass cools, it retains the curved shape of the mold.
The colour in this artwork is the glass itself. This means you won’t ever have to worry about the colour fading or washing off. During the firing, we anneal the glass. Because of this, the strength and durability of the glass is increased, so you know it will last for many years.
