What is fused glass?

There are many forms of glass art. Fused glass is one of them.

The basic idea behind fused glass is that art objects can be created by melting glass in a kiln. That simple idea is behind hundreds of techniques.

Fused glass (sometimes called kilnformed, warm or, kiln-glass) is an accessible and rewarding art form for many people around the world - and it is growing quickly in popularity.

Unlike stained glass, fused glass has no "lead lines". Dimensional (non-flat) pieces can be created without having cut and assemble hundreds of smaller pieces.

Unlike blown glass, the learning curve is relatively short, there are far fewer physical demands on the artist, and anyone's garage can be converted into a well equipped fused glass studio.
