Fused Glass Page 1
Fused glass offers a different approach to stained and leaded glass design where a lighter and more modern design is required. It is a technique where seperate pieces of glass are melted together to form a single shape. Glass has been used in this way for thousands of years, first recorded in Egypt in 2000BCE. Fused glass can be formed into almost any shape.
