Embellished Fused Glass

Originally uploaded by LeahPellegrini
Tonight I taught a fun class that I call "Torch for Fusion". Its all about playing with the torch to heat and manipulate glass. This glass can then be used to embellish a piece of fused glass. The plate in the picture has been decorated with a glass magnolia tree branch in full bloom. I made the embellishments in the flame and then I applied the branch onto the plate in a separate kiln firing before slumping the plate into its mold.
