Innovative Glass and Home
… your source for innovative, stained glass valances and fused glass ornaments, dishware, and decorative products for your home!
Polly & Dan have been working with glass since 2005 and have a studio in their home in Scarborough, Maine. They both do traditional stained glass work, but Polly’s real passion is fusing glass.
The Art of Fusing Glass:
The process begins with fusible stained glass. Elements of the design are cut by hand from the various colors of glass, cleaned, assembled, and placed in a kiln. The intense heat fuses the individual pieces of glass into one. The size and thickness of the glass dictates how long it needs to stay in the kiln, but a typical firing takes approximately 18 hours.
Creating a dish from the fused piece of glass is achieved by returning it to the kiln a second time, at a lower temperature, on a ceramic or stainless steel mold. The glass slumps into the mold, taking on its shape, as the temperature in the kiln rises. That process is glass slumping.
