What is warm glass or kiln-formed glass? Fused or warm glass is actually the oldest type of glass art known to man, but the least well known. Most historians believe that the first glass fusing and kiln casting was done by the ancient Mesopotamians in 2000 BC. Egyptians and Romans were the most prolific, and examples of their work can be viewed in museums around the world.
Heating glass in a kiln is the basis of warm glass art. The processes create a variety of different artistic and functional products based on a range of temperature work, such as fusing, slumping, and casting.
Glass Artists available for interview or television demonstrations:
If your media organization is interested in showcasing warm-glass artists via your media outlet, please contact Andrea Malouf to schedule an interview or television demonstration with our award-winning artists, who enthusiastically enjoy discussing their art
