In My Studio - Rosi Lusardi

Making a Mask with Fused Glass
1.  I use fusing glass COE 90 (in comes in different colors, textures and forms).
2. I make paper patterns and cut the glass accordingly.
3. Then I stack and glue the glass.
4. Sometimes I add some frit (ground glass).
5. Next I fire the project at a tack/full setting (about 8 hours).
6. Sometimes I refire doing a slump fuse to make it curved.
7. Then I do any touchup, decide on a name, and how to display it.

I started fusing glass almost 20 years ago. First taking classes, then paying for kiln firings, then getting my own kilns.
It is always a rush when it's time to open the kiln and see if it worked the way you expected, had a disastrous error, or a delightful surprise!
