Welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy your visit!

I started this blog because of my love for art glass. I have been creating glass art for 15 years and have worked at a number of studios in central Ohio. Some time ago, I decided to share my knowledge of the craft with others by starting a blog. After much consideration, I chose the name; Glass is Life for my web site. The name reflects my passion for the material, as well as the art form itself.

Here you will find lots of information about how the glass is made and its history. You can also read about topics such as safety and basic glass making techniques. Most importantly, you will get a chance to see some amazing work from artists around the world. I hope that you enjoy your visit to this site as much as I enjoy sharing it with you!

Hi! My name is Cecelia and I am the Marketing Manager at Indiana Glass. I have compiled some information to help you learn more about art glass and especially the history behind it, as well as how it is made today.

I hope you enjoy the information, feel free to contact me with any questions!

*A blog about stained glass, how it is made and the history behind it. I will explain the different processes and where they came from. Also new works and finished pieces.*

Art glass is one of the most versatile art mediums, with a history that spans many centuries. It is also one of the most popular mediums in today’s world. Art glass is used to create everything from functional objects to works of art. Art glass can be made in any color, and almost any shape imaginable.

Art glass has been around for thousands of years. It was first discovered by early man during the Stone Age, when they would gather colored rocks and put them into fire to melt them down and make crude beads out of them. This practice continued even after the discovery of metals for jewelry making, which shows just how popular art glass was in ancient times. Art glass has been used for jewelry making throughout the ages and continues to be even now.

The most basic type of glass is soda-lime glass, which is the kind used for windows. It’s cheap and easy to make, but it doesn’t have a lot of interesting qualities.

The other main type, called “art glass,” is more expensive and more difficult to work with. Its colors are usually more vibrant than those of soda-lime glass; its surface can be smoother (especially when it’s decorated with luster or iridescent glass); and art glass has the potential to be sculptural, since it can be molded into oddly shaped objects.

To create art glass, you have to start with something much more complicated than just sand, soda ash and limestone. You have to mix in things like metal oxides that give the glass its color and control how it melts; other metal oxides that change how transparent the finished glass is; and various chemicals that add texture to the finished piece (this is called “fining”).

Art glass has been around for thousands of years. The first glasses were made in Mesopotamia, but only after about 500 B.C. did people begin making colored glasses by adding metallic salts to the mixture.

Welcome to Art Glass Manufacturing! This site is dedicated to art glass manufacturing from the raw materials of sand, quartz and lime, to the finished product. It will give you a glimpse into the history of glass and the evolution of hot glass processes. It is also about contemporary glass artists who continue to advance the medium.

Art glass is made by fusing together different colors of glass to create a piece of art with a rich color palette. Art glass can be melted in a furnace or kiln using a variety of techniques. The colors are not limited to the colors of the glass, however. A wide range of materials such as metal can be used to add intricate details to the art glass.

Fused glass is a type of art that uses the fusion process, which occurs when two things are heated up to the point where they become one. Fused glass has been around for centuries and has been used for everything from jewelry to furniture. It was only in 1970 that fused glass was introduced as an art form in its own right when Harvey Karten began making his famous large-scale pieces. These works were shown at galleries on New York City’s upper east side, which was an area known for its cutting edge styles and trends.

Artists use a wide range of colors and patterns when creating fused pieces. Artists may use commercial colors or opt for custom colors that they mix themselves. Artists can also add patterning by painting or printing images onto their work before it is fired.

Fused pieces can also include other components such as natural elements like sand or sea shells, or other types
