CREATION PROCESS:

Each element of the design is cut by hand, washed, assembled and placed in the kiln, where it fuses together to become one piece of glass.

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.  We cut the elements of the design by hand from the various colors of glass, clean and assemble it and then place it in a kiln.  The intense heat fuses the individual pieces of glass into one. The size and thickness of the glass design 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.
