Square Kiln Formed Glass Plate
TECHNIQUE: In fusing, multiple pieces of glass are arranged in a pattern and heated in a kiln. This piece features a series of glass shapes cut by hand and arranged on top of sheet glass. These shapes are stacked one on top of the other in a way that when the glass melts and flows out, a new pattern is formed. After cooling, the edges of this piece are ground and polished by hand. Finally the glass is laid into, or on top of a mold and heated just to the point where it “slumps” or moves with heat and gravity, to fit the form of the mold.
DIMENSIONS: 6-1/4" x 6 1/4"
