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.
