Fusing Basics, Molds & More

Joy of Fusing provides every fundamental technique that beginning fusers need while experienced hot-glass artists will discover a few new tricks along the way.

From the bestselling author of ‘Introduction to Stained Glass’ comes this well written and lavishly illustrated instruction book that will show readers everything they need to know to be successful fusing artists. The author’s style is easy going with sprinkles of humor making this book a fun and easy read. At the heart of the book is a shrewdly simplified kiln-firing strategy that uses hi-resolution photographs to link each fusing schedule.

These 27 projects are illustrated with how-to color photographs and easy to follow instructions that include all necessary firing schedules. With an emphasis on design composition, pre-fuse assembly and firing technique the reader can copy a project straight from the book or make creative personalized changes. There are dozens of ‘ProTips’ throughout the book, integrated with step-by-step demonstrations - page after page of fusing instruction and inspiration for readers to discover.

25 Pre-printed Sheets on a Convenient Tear-Off Pad

A ‘Companion Publication’ for the book Joy of Fusing

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Truer words have never been spoken, particularly as it applies to glass fusing. There are times when we would love to repeat a perfect firing outcome or an amazing but unanticipated effect. There are other times when we encounter a disappointing result that we would like to avoid in the future. This is where record keeping plays an important role.

These Fusing Log Sheets come in a familiar ‘writing pad’ style with convenient tear off pages. Each log page is pre-printed (in 2 colors) with easy to use ‘check boxes’ for the most common types and styles of fuse firings. There is a space to describe the glass & components in the project and another to make a simple sketch. Two blank firing schedule tables are set-up in a format that is invaluable when it’s time to program the digital controller. Then a conclusion and observation area is available for comments and suggestions to help you make appropriate decisions when planning similar projects in the future.
