TipSheet 3: Working Deep
This TipSheet will introduce you to ways to float imagery and color within thick blocks of clear glass. Thick glass castings have resulted historically from pours of furnace glass or by kiln-melting glass chunks or frits. The method we will call “stack firing” results, instead, from the fusing of multiple layers of clear sheet glass on which are imbedded lines and fields of colored glass. This method is direct, simple, and allows greater control of line quality than is achievable with other techniques. The reader is assumed to have a basic knowledge of glass fusing methods.
