Get to Know
Welcome! I am drawn to art glass in a big way, have been for years. I love to work with, admire and collect it. I started working with stained glass and mosaic about 25 years ago. I moved on to kiln-formed (fused) glass and my husband and I create fused glass art in our home studio.
I also collect, buy and re-sell vintage Murano glass from Venice Italy.
The name of our business ~ Imagine It In Glass ~ came from years of making fused glass pieces for online customers who wanted some pretty unusual and challenging images in glass. Hence...
'if you can imagine it, I can probably make it...'
I work with sheet glass and specialty glasses made in the US and Italy. I love playing with millefiore, murrine, dichroic glass, enamels, and glass powders/frit. Custom work is possible, from dinner plate sets to special occasion pieces, ornaments and pet portraits. What you see here is a fraction of the kind of work we do.
Thanks for looking and liking! Patricia
This is one of 3 electronic kilns my husband and I run. The first firing takes about 8 hours. The glass will then be worked again (slumped, draped, smoothed on a grinder, polished, and most likely re-fired) before it is finished.
This is the same set of glass items shown above, but now the kiln is red hot at 1,280F degrees still ramping up to melt/fuse together the design at about 1400F.
