Each piece is made up of two sheets of glass.  Between each sheet a variety of glass or metal inclusions, colours, powders and frits can be placed to create depth within the piece. 

 

Finally, the chosen colours are positioned on the uppermost sheet of glass to complete your design.  The different layers of colour and shape then combine in the kiln to stunning effect.

 

Once the glass is prepared in the kiln it is fired in stages up to 825°C.

 

The temperature is controlled as it cools in order to anneal the glass and prevent stresses and cracking in years to come.

 

A wide range of colour is possible; from subtle, pale and dark to strong, bright and zingy!

 

Gold and platinum, in a special glass form, can also be fused onto your piece (see our Blockbuster design).
