We had another Fusing Workshop a few weeks ago which gave us five beautiful pieces that I just can't ignore, so here goes. Susan D, Jan, Martha, Lisa, and Leigh Anne all joined in for the fun that was actually spread across two separate classes. When they came in they were all given a spot on a table with a work station that looked like this.
Here's a look at a completed but yet un-fired plate.
Once all the glass was cut and placed, the plates went into the kiln where they were heated up to about 1450 degrees over a period of 8 hours so that all the glass would fuse together into one piece. The next day AFTER THE KILN HAS COMPLETELY COOLED we opened it and had three gorgeous plates (and a quick test strip to see what color changes might occur with some new glass Russ had just received.)
So that's it. Everyone had fun, everyone was thrilled with their results and everyone wants to do other projects so I guess we have to call this Fusing Workshop a success. That means that fusing classes will surely be happening in 2021!
