What is Glass Fusing
Glass Fusing is the art of melting multiple sheets together to form one piece. In the fusion process, the glass is heated to nearly 800c in a kiln and cooled slowly (annealed) it can then be used for windows, lightcatchers and jewellery or re-fired to make bowls, plates and textured forms. It is also known as kiln forming, and is a contemporary version of stained glass making. The first known users of the fusing technique were Egyptians in ancient history, but it became popular from the 1970s onwards.
