Handmade Fused Glass Soap Dishes
Our slatted glass soap dishes are proving to be very popular. They have previously been available in full sized and mini soap bar sizes, but a few customers have been asking if we'd make a new size that's large enough to take a full sized bar, but a little smaller so it fits on a wash basin. We're happy to oblige!
This new square fused glass soap dish measures approximately 8cm x 8cm and has 6 glass slats running across the surface to support the soap bar between uses. This size will fit a fresh full sized bar of our soap, or 2 mini bars. The flat design means that the soap won't slide around or fall off the dish, and the slats will accommodate a full sized bar, but are close enough together to support the bar as it shrinks with use.
Approximate Size: 8cm x 8cm x 1cm tall (including rubber feet)
Please see images to get an idea of the colours available, but please remember that each dish will be different because it is handmade. This means that we cannot guarantee the exact colouring or patterning on each dish, so each one will be unique. Colour options include:
Aqua - variegated pale aqua and white marbled/swirled effect
Blue - variegated patterns of pale and darker blue marbled/swirled effect
Green - marbled/striped greens sometimes with pale blues
Grey - dark charcoal grey with paler grey and white marbling/swirls
Lavender - this is a blue/dark lilac colour with some white marbled/swirled effects
Pale Green & Pink - very pale green, white and pink marbled/swirled pattern - you will receive the dish in the image.
Pink - variegated pale and darker pink sometimes with a white marbled/swirled effect
Pink & Blue - pale pink and blue marbled/swirled effect
Purple/Aqua and Blue - very unusual dishes with many colours: dark purple, lilacs, blues, aqua and white marbled/swirled effects
Turquoise - pale to mid turquoise with white marbled/swirled effect.
Blue, Black & Silver - special edition blue and black with metallic highlights.
Each soap dish is made by hand using special art glass. We carefully cut the glass and assemble each soap dish before firing it in the kiln for approximately 17 hours. The glass reaches around 800OC while it is in the kiln which allows the glass to fuse together and become polished, before it is carefully cooled down again. Sometimes we use a 2nd kiln firing to slump the glass into a mould to create a curved dish shape. Every soap dish will be completely unique since we are using art glass (every sheet of glass will be different) and can never guarantee how the shape and pattern will change during the firing process. As a courtesy we have added smaller rubber feet to the base of each dish. This lifts up the glass by about 3mm, to ensure the dish drains freely. Please be aware that it is very difficult to permanently stick anything to a glass surface, so over time these feet may loosen (particularly if the dish is left sitting in water). If the feet become loose, use a glue that's suitable for glass to reapply, or they may be removed if you prefer. We'd recommend that you periodically wipe your soap dish to remove any dried soap from the glass surface.
Our handmade fused glass soap dishes are supplied in a brown cardboard gift box.
