Black and Clear Glass Plate

Black and Clear Glass Plate

This glass plate is part of a set of 3 matching plates (the fourth piece of glass didn’t make it through the kiln).  The glass is called Black and Clear Baroque made by Spectrum.  The glass is not tested for fusibility, so this kind of glass can’t be fused with other glass, not even other pieces of glass.  It can be fused to itself, however.  A single piece of glass can be cut up into all different shapes and sizes and then fused together, just don’t try fusing a separate piece of glass to another.  Believe me, I tried it once and the glass was very brittle and started to crack right away.

I am working on creating sets of glass plates for people to use when entertaining guests.  Not many people have their own handcrafted one-of-a-kind set of plates.  I think I will make a set of plates for myself — not that I ever have any people to entertain 🙂

    great website and your projects are beautiful!!. I would like to ask a question and i am sure someone probably already has, but did not find it. Do you use fiber paper under your glass for your first fusing in the kiln? I am looking for a cheaper route and have not found one yet except for firing it straight on the kiln shelf.

    I, like you, give as much advice in my field of hobbies to other people when they get started- so much appreciation to you in advance! Thanks

    Hi CJ,

    I do not use fiber paper under my glass. Most of the time I use kiln wash on the shelves and sometimes I will use thin fire paper — much thinner than fiber paper.
