What is fused glass?
In a nutshell, “fused glass” is just as it sounds, glass that’s fused together in a kiln to become one piece. I do not use paints or enamels in my work. All the color you see is achieved with pieces of glass, opaque & translucent glass sheet, frit (envision chunks the size of kosher salt & larger) & stringers (like spagetti), cut, layered & fired at 1500 & annealed for hours before the kiln can be opened. A typical firing takes 16 or more hours & may even take more than one firing to achieve the finished piece.
Because of the nature of the process and the fact that each piece is made one at a time, variations will occur. The fused glass piece you buy will be similar to that pictured but rarely identical.
