GLASS FUSION CREATIONS
Glass fusion is a process of firing glass to a low temperature in the kiln so the glass pieces are permanently bonded. It sounds complicated, but it’s actually very easy! Using small pieces of glass called “chips” and “frit”, create your one of a kind design! We will fire your glass piece into your choice of finished products: A hanging suncatcher, a flat tile, or we can slump your glass into a plate or bowl.
Glass fusion creations – before and after firing
