How It’s DoneRosemarie’s glassware is made from two pieces of clear glass cut to the desired shape and fused together at very high temperatures. The design on the plate is created by applying enamels by hand between the two layers of glass. The piece is then placed on a form in the kiln and fired for several hours, then cooled overnight.
This firing accomplishes several processes simultaneously: The enamels mature, the two pieces of glass become one, and the glass assumes the shape of the form on which it was fired. The layering and fusing process gives both surface texture and unique visual qualities to the glass. It becomes a functional piece of art and may be placed in the dishwasher.
The Final ProductThe result is the beautiful glassware art forms you see throughout the Distinguished Art Glass site.
