Fusing is a technique to join glass pieces of the same COE (co-efficient-ofexpansion) together by melting the glass at high temperature.
We can create one glass work by stacking or layering thin sheets of glass, using different colors or elements such as sheets, frit, and stringer, etc.
Slumping is a technique to bend or shape glass into or over a mold.
The stages of the firing can be varied, one glass work generally requires 2 or more separate firings, one to fuse and a second slump it to shape.
Lampwork (Flamework or Torchwork)
Lampwork is a technique to melt the glass by using a torch or lamp.
In a molten state, the glass is formed by shaping and blowing with tools and hand movements.
