I am fortunate that I live in the same city as Hollander’s Fusing Center. I registered for a class with the amazing, talented Cyndi Seeberger. I already knew I wanted to get back into working with glass. I had done stained glass (copper foil and lead) before and set it aside as the reality of toddlers and glass shards proved to be too much of a challenge. But glass fusing was (is) completely new to me. I fell in love. I fell hard!
My first projects were a marvel to me. I love the chemistry, the physics, the possibilities! I want to learn all the things. The pocket vase created with refractory paper (that’s a thing?!), the negative space “carving,” playing with real dichroic. [ All those years of creating faux dichroic with polymer clay, embossing powders, and mica… the truth is, there isn’t any comparison! ] So many things to learn! Firing schedules, COE, frit, powder, stringers, noodles.. So here I go. Join me in exploring the world of fused glass art.
