Glass Fusing

Almost 20 years ago I took a class in Glass Fusing (heating glass up in a kiln to melt it together).  The things you can make are really cool.  Then this was  a pretty new craft  and there wasn’t alot of  information published about it.  I was really interested.  There was a glass shop near the restaurant my ex-husband owned and I took the class there.  We made a few things in class.  I was interested enough that I bought a small kiln and did some firing.  I made alot of earrings and tried to sell them at craft shows.  I was able to sell some, but not many.  I moved again and decided to sell my kiln. Now I wish I would have kept it. 

In my very first post on this blog  you can see the bracelet that I made in a jewelry class.  I took another class and we made several things in class.  A frame, two coasters and a drapped vase.  It was lots of fun and I am going to take the intermediate class as well where we can choose our project and the teacher will help us to complete it.  The glass shop is Bella Glass. The have all kinds of classes if you live in the Denver Metro Area.  Here are the pictures of my projects.
