Plankton Diatoms Fused Glass Plate Coral (pinkish orange)

Diatoms are a major group of algae, and are one of the most common types of phytoplankton. Most diatoms are unicellular, and are producers within the food chain. A characteristic feature of diatom cells is that they are encased within a unique cell wall made of silica (hydrated silicon dioxide) called a frustule. These frustules show a wide diversity in form, but usually consist of two asymmetrical sides with a split between them, hence the group name.

This plate has been created using casing, mold making and kiln carving techniques. The diatoms are actually "carved" or incised in on the back side of the plate.

8 " square, sushi style fused and kiln formed glass. food safe. hand washing recommended.
