  • Is everything handmade?

  • What is fused glass?
    Glass fusing is a form of glass art where different pieces of glass are melted together (fused) at high heat in a glass kiln. Each piece of glass is hand cut using a scoring tool, running pliers, and a grozer tool. Once the design is completed, the piece is moved to a glass fusing kiln where it will stay for the next 12-18 hours to heat and cool slowly, reaching a max temperature of around 1500 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • How long have you been doing this?
    Alison has been working in fused glass since 2007.
