Glassfusion fundamentally means to construct new glass from a solid state, assembling
various piece which, upon contact with heat varying from 800 to 850°C, become
so fluid as to profoundly meld themselves in an irreversible manner.
The cooling process is quite slow in order to permit total reorganization and
the recuperation of the molecular stability that the
possessed before being heated.
Using colored composites (enamel, oxides) glassfusion allows polychromatic objects
to be created.
The work of a glass artist uses two principal
elements: heat and the force of gravity. The result depends on the degree of communication
between the artist, the glass and
the kiln which is used.
The Tiffany technique takes its name from its inventor the American Louis
Comfort Tiffany. It is composed of a glass mosaic which is externally overlayed
by a thin copper cord and assembled together by soldering.
