Its fusing manufacturing process, although delicate, is simple. It involves superimposing colored glasses with the desired design on a base glass and placing it in the oven.
In this process, no room is left to chance, but it is the artist who with his skill manages to connect technique and creativity. The craftsman's hand and fire combine in harmony to create unique and unrepeatable pieces that give originality to the work.
A flat glass plate can be thermoformed inside molds. When the temperature of the glass increases it undergoes an expansion, that is to say, it goes from having a consistency of honey to liquid. This step is used by the artist to manipulate it by means of heat, thus achieving colors and numerous effects.
The plates obtained with this technique can be used for different jobs such as thermoforming, to obtain grits (colored glasses of different granulometries), murrines (glass tesserae for the manufacture of mosaic glass, better known as glass millefiori) and for the development of the Roll Up technique (a technique developed in Australia and the USA, with which the fusing plates are blown without the need for a smelting furnace).
The wide variety of materials available today, enhance and stimulate the creativity of artists and artisans resulting in true works of art, from the simplest tray to the most spectacular stained glass window, they are just a small example of the infinite applications of the Fusing.
