What is it?
Fused glass is a term used to describe glass that has been fired (heat-processed) in a kiln at a range
of high temperatures from 1,099 F to 1,501 F. Fused glass techniques are generally used to
create art glass, glass tiles, nightlights, sun-catchers and jewelry. There are 3 main distinctions for
temperature application and the resulting effect on the glass. Firing in the lower ranges of these
temperatures is called slumping. Firing in the middle ranges of these temperatures is considered
"tack fusing". Firing the glass at the higher spectrum of the range is a "full fuse". All of these
techniques can be applied to one glass work in separate firings to add depth, relief and shape.
Slumping allows the creation of larger, functional pieces like dishes, bowls and plates. Producing
functional pieces generally requires 2 or more separate firings, one to fuse the glass and a second
to shape it.
We love to create in glass and we would love to share our enthusiasm with you! First, select
your base piece from our wide selection of clear & colored bases. Design, Design, Design! While
we have the tools you need to cut, we also have a substantial selection of glass frits (ground
glass), bits (pre-cut squares), chips (small broken pieces), pebbles (small round glass bits), rods,
noodles, and stringers that you can use to create beautiful works of art without any cutting, if
you wish. We can also provide assistance and instruction in glass cutting. We'll fuse your piece
(either a full fuse or tack/texture, your choice). For a small additional fee, we can do a slump
firing to turn your masterpiece into a bowl or dish, it's all up to you. Your piece will be ready to
pick up in 5 days!
Our fee structure is simple:
Cost of the project (s) + Studio fee($8 Adults/$6 under 14 & Seniors)= Total!
**Priceless memories that last a lifetime!**
We only charge one studio fee per person per visit, regardless of how many projects you
