New glass enamel art

This past winter I spent some time experimenting and practicing with a new medium, glass enamels. I painted on top of the glass, on the back of the glass, and on both front and back on one, went a little CooCoo actually. Lots learned and some frustrations but all worth it in the end. All these are fired in a kiln at around 1165f, I have yet to try and fuse these enamels between layers of glass, that’s will be next! All these are showing at the Rural Routes exhibit at the Cre8ery Gallery in Winnipeg Mb till May 11th, 2021

glass fusing

What  the  heck  is  fusing   glass???

  ” Fusing  is  the  technique  of  joining  two  or  more  layers  of  glass  by  heat  in  a  kiln. “

1.  Cut  coloured  fusing  glass  in desired shapes 

2.  lay  them  down  on  top  of  each  other 

3.  fuse  together  in  the  kiln 

4.  paint 

5.  fire  again

and  Voila  done !
