What is fusing?
Glass fusing is a technique used to join glass pieces together by partially melting glass using high temperatures. The heating is commonly performed in an electric kiln. Instead of fitting glass together using a lead solder, two or more pieces of glass are laid on top of, or overlapped on each other, and are exposed to temperatures ranging from 720 to 900 degrees Celsius.
Fusing in its origin, according to current archaeological knowledge is an at least 2200 years old process. In recent years it has increased in popularity.
It is important to realize that pieces of glass with different coefficients of expansion cannot be fused together - upon cooling or after a certain period of time, the fused piece will crack. Many people who work in glass fusing prefer to work with one brand of glass (e.g. Bullseye, Uroborus, Baoli, Spectrum) which is guaranteed to be compatible with any other glass from the range of fusible glass types offered by that particular manufacturer.
