ABOUT GLASS FUSING
The technique of glass fusing involves designing, cutting and then stacking, or layering, thin sheets of glass, often using different colors to create patterns or simple images. The piece is then placed inside the kiln and heated through a series of ramps and soaks (hold time) until the separate pieces begin to bond (fuse) together. This is acheived at a temperture of about 1490 degrees.
The glass is then either placed in a mold and re-fired (slump) to give it the shape of plates, bowls, candle holders etc. or cut, polished and re-fired to create unique pieces of jewelry.
All my creations are designed and hand made with great care by me in my studio in Whitby, Ontario. They are unique and very durable, to be enjoyed for years to come.
