Adventures with Glass part 2 Glass Fusion

Glass Fusion

Edges of glass wet sanded to make them smooth.



Blue glass powder sprinkled onto the glass.






On the left the glass has been decorated with blue powder then drawn into with a colour shaper.

On the right the glass has had 3 bands of powered glass laid next to one another. The glass with the blue pattern was laid on top of the glass with the 3 colours. There is some reflection from the windows above.




These were heated in a kiln to fuse the glass and cooled slowly to prevent cracking.




The finished pieces
