Making Swirly Fused Art Glass Pieces
I love doing all sorts of techniques in lampworking, glass fusing, and beading. My current favorite art glass fusing technique is making what I call swirly art glass pieces. I seem to be adding these pieces to most of my current fused glass jewelry, coasters, and votives.
Here's how I make them:
Day One: 1. Decide on what colors of glass I want to make the pieces. 2. Cut the art glass into rectangles approximately 1.5 by 2.5 inches. 3. Stack the rectangles on top of each other. 4. Put them in the kiln and do a full fuse overnight.
Pieces chosen and cut.
Pieces stacked and ready for my kiln.
