  • Introduction To Fused Glass

Max 6 participants

 Fused glass is glass that has been fired in a kiln at 1,200 °F to 1,515 °F.  The goal is to fuse multiple layers of glass together to form a single layer.  The glass is then shaped in the kiln using a mold to make objects such as plates, bowls, vases, business card holders, etc.

·       The objectives for the course are to:

      -       describe the various forms of glass – powder, frit, stringers, cullets, billets, rods, sheet glass, confetti

     -       cut, grind, and fit glass pieces together to create a design*

     -       fire glass in a kiln

   -       describe the stages of the firing process

   -       slump glass using a mold

*Previous experience cutting glass is helpful, but is not necessary.
