Fused Glass Windows

 

This Fused Glass Window hangs above the cooker.

I built it in a frame to hinge back to the wall during the day.

 

The Glass is from lots of courses I have been on in fused glass and purchased glass balls.

These are stuck onto a piece of glass and then another placed on top and framed.

 

It was made to replace a blind that was above the cooker.

It adds lots of colour to your cooking.

This Fused Glass Window

was made to cover an ugly window above the stove.

 

The  window is used instead of a blind

When Moored up on the canal the window changes with the scene outside and the light.

 

The glass was tack fused and frits where applied.

Frits are ground pieces of glass in variety of sizes and colours.

Tack fusing is when the kiln temperature is not taken to full fuse and

the glass applied stays slightly risen up and does not melt fully.
