What is Glass Fusing?

Glass Fusing is simply the process of stacking two or more layers of compatible glass together to make a design, then placing the stacked glass into your kiln, where it melts (fuses) together.

A project generally begins with a base layer (often one or two pre-cut glass Bases) with a design layer on top, including glass accents, focal elements, and often a border treatment.



Once your design is fused into a single flat unit, the project can be returned to the kiln and heated just to its softening point (about 1225º F), causing it to sag over or into a mold. This transforms the flat project into a functional or artistic 3-D piece, such as a bowl, tray, platter, or vase. The actual goal temperature and hold time for a slump depends on what type of project you’re making.
