Facts about Fusing
Fusing is an ancient technique that started more than 4000 years ago. The Americans revived the technique under the 40's. Pieces of glass is cut apart and fitted together into a mosaic. This is then melted and shaped in special fusing ovens. Depending on the type of glass it is heated up to between 700 ° C and 900 ° C and then slowly cooled down so the glass will not crack. The glass is then formed in ceramic or metallic molds. All manufacturing is done by hand and each product is unique.
