Warm Glass Fusing
What is Warm Glass Fusing? At its simplest, glass fusing is a process in which formulated compatible* glass is assembled and then melted/fused together in a kiln. The illustration to the right breaks down the basic steps required to make a colorful geometric dish by simply cutting and stacking blocks of Transparent & Opalescent color onto a glass base. After cutting and stacking layers of compatible glass together, the project was put in a kiln and fired hot enough to melt the layers together. To form the piece into a dish, it was placed on a ceramic mold and fired a second time — just to the softening point — causing the glass to take the shape of the mold.
