About the Texas Artisan and the Fused Glass Process
The lamp is handmade by a Texas artisan who loves working with glass. When he discovered the fused glass or kiln-glass process he knew it was the medium for him. The technique requirestechnical skill, precise planning and artistic expression to get the desired result.
Fused glass uses the high temperatures of a kiln to heat the glass until it softens and fully fuses to a flat piece. The piece is then placed in a mold and reheated until it takes the shape of the mold.
Fused glass is different from blown glass in that glass is heated in a kiln and the high temperatures soften the glass and fuse together. Blown glass inflates molten glass into a bubble with the aid of a blowpipe.
Each hand made item is slightly different and may have very slight variations. The slight differences are controlled by the artist and add to the beauty of the finished piece.
