Glass Fusing Design Techniques with Powders on Fiber Paper

by Lena Beckéus

Book Image Not Available
Overview

My goal with this book is to inspire and generate enthusiasm for experimenting with powdered glass. I have an enormous passion for glass powders: their characteristics, unpredictability and endless possibilities fascinate me. The glass used is 90 COE, but you can adjust your firing schedules to suit glass that has a COE of 96 or for float glass. In this book, I describe and demonstrate techniques in over 80 pictures where I use glass powder with fiber paper in combination with stringers, scrap glass and frit, to make a wide variety of designs. Beyond basic glass fusing knowledge and a kiln, the materials and equipment used are few and simple.
