Fused glass art is fascinating from the time you cut a piece a glass until you take the piece out of the kiln. All the wonder and beautiful reflective properties of molten glass still amazes me. Wearing a beautiful piece of dichroic glass jewelry always draws attention. As does a wonderful bowl, plate,and/or a dish.
