Fused glass is an ancient practice with roots dating back to the early Egyptian civilizations. In modern day, many have utilized fusing glass as an artistic form of expression to create intricate pieces; particularly jewelry. This innovative technique involves heating glass to high temperatures to "fuse" it into extraordinary designs.
Achieving desired designs starts by laying your glass down on a flat, even surface and then scoring the it with a tool to create the look you want. Next, you break the glass in accordance to your desired shape and layer the pieces. This can be done with a blend of glass colors for a riveting contrasting effect.
Finally, your glass creation is fired in a kiln which is where the fusing process occurs. Once your piece has cooled, you are left with a stunning, original piece of art in jewelry form.
