This very striking plate with Australian Grass Tree design (also known as Black Boys) is created by fusing and slumping in a mould. Crafted by Julie and Laszlo Biro of In Spirit Glass Design. They hand paint all their items as well as employing a host of techniques including air brushing and using enamels imported from Germany . All of their glass although remarkably similar are one off artworks as no two are exactly the same. Laszlo originally from Hungary now lives in the Northern Rivers area in New South Wales where with his wife Julie they create a range of Australian inspired works from plates and vases through to large sculptural sting rays that can also be used as garden ornaments.
