“What is "Fused" Glass"?
There are many different forms of glass art.
The basic idea behind Fused Glass is that art objects can be created by melting glass inside a kiln.

I hand cut two or more pieces of glass that I place in the kiln and heat until they fuse together into a single piece. Normally there are about 8 segments which take up to 17+ hours. During this firing process, temperatures can reach up to 1500+ degrees Fahrenheit.

Once the annealing process (the slow cooling down of the glass ) is completed, I then remove the pieces and take them to the diamond grinder. This is where I shape and smooth any rough edges.

After the pieces are all grinded down and smooth, I place them back into the kiln for another fire. This is the "polishing" stage. This last fire takes roughly 12 - 14 hours to complete.

Thank you for viewing my shop. I hope you stop back again soon :)
