What It Is
Fused Glass projects consist of pieces of colored glass, arranged on a clear blank base that are placed in the kiln and melted flat together. We have boxes of special fuseable glass to cut into different shapes and sizes and combine with pebble shaped glass, angle hair pasta shaped glass, linguine shaped glass and crushed glass frits for an endless combination of possibilities. The result are sure to impress and fascinate. All projects are fired in the kiln so you’ll have to come back in a few days to pick up your finished project. We fire glass no less than once a week.
How To Do It
At Your Creation Station, we offer Fused Glass as both “walk in and do it” type project as well as in an instructor-led, project based, workshop format.
Fused Glass Project Workshops
If you’ve never worked with glass before or if your just more comfortable having someone on hand to ask questions of, try one of our Fused Glass Workshops. Workshops are project based and include everything you’ll need to complete whatever project the class is doing as well as an instructor to guide your through selecting materials and using the tools to cut and assemble glass for fusing. Currently, we offer about two workshops a month doing projects such as wind chimes, glass bowls, butteryflies and others. Workshop registration can be completed online or by calling the studio during business hours.
