What Is Glass Fusing?

Believe it or not, the art of Glass Fusing has been around since about 2000 BCE. During the Renaissance period, glass fusing lost its' popularity as Stained Glass swept the charts. It wasn't until the 1960's that glass fusing re-emerged, now glass fusing considered one of the fastest growing art forms.

 

Glass fusing is the bonding of separate pieces of glass by high heat, administered in a kiln. It’s easy to learn the basics of glass fusing, it’s fun, and the possibilities are endless. There is a vast range of techniques, and we are always experimenting!

 

At The Glass Bar, you have the opportunity to experiment with glass fusing on a beginners' level. We also offer classes in more advanced techniques for those with a desire to learn.
