Glass-On-Glass Fusion

Glass-on-glass fusion, also known as Fused Glass, involves joining multiple pieces of glass together through the use of fusion welding, or through a process called slumping, molding glass to a specific form at high temperatures. The multiple glass are placed and fired in a kiln at temperatures ranging from 1,099 degrees Fahrenheit to 1,501 degrees Fahrenheit. The piece maintains its general shape when using the lower temperatures of tack fusing, but becomes a flat surface again when undergoing full fusing. With our unique glass-on-glass technique we offer unusual, fusion glass made out of material destined to give it a different shape, colour and purpose. Designs are inspired by the natural world and by the belief that light and colour can enrich our lives. Our commitment is that each piece should be unique, a work of art in it’s own right, not to be replicated or copied unless specifically intended.

Fusing Techniques
The fusing technique used to create the fused glass item plays a large part in determining the temperatures used in the kiln.

  • Slumping – Firing in the lower ranges of these temperatures 593–677 °C (1,099–1,251 °F)
  • Tack Fusing – Firing in the middle ranges of these temperatures 677–732 °C (1,251–1,350 °F)
  • Full Fusing – Firing the glass at the higher spectrum of this range 732–816 °C (1,350–1,501 °F)
