I was recently lucky enough to take an afternoon art class with one of my favorite artists, my dad! He signed us up to take an ‘Intro to Fusing
‘ class at Aquila Glass
. I honestly knew very little about this type of art before enrolling. The basic concept is simple, it involves taking pieces of certain types of glass and putting them together to form a larger design that is merged into one under a kiln. It might be easiest to show you what we worked on.

After taking this class I have been more aware of this art form around me. Here are some fun Etsy items for sale that used glass fusion as a technique.
