I began working in fused glass soon after I fell in love with stained glass.
Fused glass allows for more experimentation as you produce a piece. The process is similar to building a collage. I cut pieces of glass, or use frit, which are small pieces of glass in various levels of coarseness. Then I melt the glass according to my design in a kiln, usually to about 1500 degrees F. Depending on the design, each fused glass piece could take as many as six or more firings in the kiln.
