Striped Delight

Your guests are sure to be impressed with this eye-catching glass sushi or cheese tray. Artist Orfeo Quagliata designed this vivid colored tray using his own handcrafted opaque glass that he creates in his glass studio in Mexico. Striking, sturdy and versatile, this tray can be used as a modern centerpiece or to showcase your scrumptious hors d'oeuvres or sushi.

This tray is a functional work of art and a companion piece in our Phuzion series. Hand assembled and hand signed by the artist, each piece is one of a kind, with varying color densities and idiosyncrasies. Handmade in Mexico.

Orfeo Quagliata

Orfeo Quagliata

Born in 1972, Orfeo Quagliata spent his childhood in San Francisco, where he began working with glass at age 12 as an apprentice to his father, acclaimed glass artist Narcissus Quagliata. Early influences draw from his father's artwork and his grandmother, Herta Jalkotzy, an award-winning jewelry designer in the Vienna Workshop collective founded by Gustav Klimt.

After high school, Orfeo went to Spain to apprentice with Catalonian glass artist Jose Fernandez Castrillo. He learned cold-working techniques with Castrillo that have become a cornerstone in his work today. He later returned to San Francisco to study industrial and furniture design at California College of Arts and Crafts (CCAC), earning a BFA with high distinction in 1999. At CCAC, Orfeo studied with furniture designer and architect Chris Deam and went on to become Deam's design assistant for three years.

Since graduation, he has taught classes in California and Washington, DC. His present work follows an inherited tradition in glass and jewelry, and at the same time is defined by his own maverick style. He lives in Mexico City, Mexico, his home since 2000.

      The top surface has a smooth finish. The bottom surface is not as smooth. Perhaps this is common for fused glass.

        Comments about PHUZION SERIES SUSHI OR CHEESE TRAY:

        I've been lusting after this platter for a few years! I bought as it a housewarming gift for a friend and obsessed about it ever since. It's so beautiful that I keep it on my sideboard on display all the time. I used it for company with chocolate dipped strawberries and got SO many comments on it. I just like to look at it because it makes me feel happy. There's nothing better than functional art.

        I was SOOO psyched to give this to a friend of mine that is Super stylish ... and only has cool stuff in her house. I did not give it to her for a long time .. deciding if I wanted to or not. The idea is GEAT .. but the finished product had fingerprints under the finish ... and it was NOT good .. I was EXTREMELY dissapointed with this product!!
