I am taking a glass fusing class and having a ball!  I'm completely addicted.  Cheesy

Just thought I'd share my first 2 projects.  They aren't works of art or anything..but not tooo bad for my first attempts!  Cheesy

Those look awesome.  I especially like the first one.  I know nothing about glass fusing.  Do you need some type of kiln for that or can you use a torch?

I love your bowl! I took a class too and loved it as well.

Yup you need a kiln. You can melt glass with a torch but just small amounts. Some people can actually blow gas with a specialized torch. But to make bowls and plates and things you need a kiln.

Yep, you need a kiln.  I really hope I can afford one in the future because this is addicting.  It'd be great to have someplace to be able to "rent" kiln time. 

I chose to use stringers for that bowl because their was a gal who hogged the grinder..so I had to scrap my original design and just went with the random stringers so that I didn't need to wait around.  Smiley  I gave it to my mom for her bday.  Cheesy
