Glass fusing is a process in which two or more pieces of glass are heated and fused together to create intricate designs, shapes, and textures. Glass fusing artists use different techniques such as slumping, kiln forming and torch working when manipulating the glass to achieve the desired effect. In general, glass fusing involves taking pieces of flat or shaped glass known as “frit”, layering them onto a clear base layer such as a sheet of float glass (a special type of smooth tempered glass) then heating it up in a kiln until it melts and forms into one solid piece.
The temperature and amount of time in the kiln will vary depending on what type of glass is being used and the desired outcome. The process can be used to create everything from decorative bowls, plates and platters to creative sculptures or even pieces for jewelry like pendants or earrings.
No matter what you decide to do with your creation, glass fusing has quickly become one of the most popular forms of creating art using this versatile material. With just a few tools and techniques, anyone can easily pick up this fun craft and make beautiful works of art that last a lifetime!
Fusing is the art of overlaying and adhering glass pieces to other glass surfaces or melting one glass directly into another.
These two techniques of fusing are called Track Fusing, where two pieces of glass are melted just enough for them to stick together, and Full Fusing, where the two glass pieces are both melted to the point where they become one.
