Warm Glass

In creating fused (warm) glass mosaics, the traditional mosaic design is only slightly altered in that its adhesive requirements are met by fusing (firing) the tesserae in a kiln. The substrate is constructed of layers of clear glass fused together for strength. The individual cuts of tesserae are then placed on the substrate and fired slightly to adhere firmly while maintaining shape and dimension. Glass frit can be applied as grout and fired before or after this second firing. Using transparent materials gives the mosaic light and dimension. My goal is to add movement as well as light and dimension to my mosaics.
