Polly & Dan have been working with glass since 2005 in their home studio in Dayton, Maine. While they both do traditional stained glass work, Polly is passionate about fusing glass.

What is fused glass?

The process begins with fusible stained glass, which is basically a special type of stained glass that can withstand the high temperatures of a kiln.  The design elements are cut by hand from the various colors of glass, cleaned, and then assembled.  The piece then goes into the kiln and the intense heat fuses the individual pieces of glass into one.  If the fused piece is going to be shaped (like the curved Birch panels) it goes into the kiln a second time at a lower temperature and is placed on a mold.  As the temperature in the kiln slowly rises the glass slumps into (or over) the mold, taking on its shape.
