Fusing Index

What is Fusing Glass?

Fusing Glass is the process of joining two or more pieces of glass by applying heat. The glass then
"sticks" or "fuses" together as it softens from the heat. As the glass heats up it becomes more liquid-like
or fluid and as it cools, the joined glass becomes solid again forming a new piece of solid glass.

Other terms used with fusing glass are annealing, combing, kiln casting, glass casting, and slumping.
      - Annealing is the point of the fusing process where the stress in the glass is released.
      - Combing is the art of raking the fluid glass usually with another color to create a "dragging" design.
      - Kiln Casting is the art of using Frit (small crushed pieces of glass) to fill in crevices or in molds.
      - Glass Casting is the art of melting glass into a mold.
      - Slumping is the art of melting glass over various molds.
