At Fused Glass & More... my
specialty is one-of-a-kind fused and slumped glass items for both personal
adornment and the home. Many of my creations feature sparkling
accents of dichroic glass, adding brilliant highlights to each
Cindy Stalnaker, a fused glass & bead artist. I learned my
craft by studying with glass craftsmen in California, Italy, and
Sweden. I handcraft each item, designing and fabricating
in my studio in Laguna Beach, California.
I am also a direct
importer of Czech art glass and Czech glass beads from the old-world
Bohemian artists in the Czech Republic.
My handcrafted fused
glass pieces start out with selection of a color scheme, then cutting,
shaping and fitting together of art glass, layer upon layer, up to 5
or more layers deep. Fragments of glass are arranged much like
a "vertical" mosaic pattern. Each piece is then kiln-fired to
1400-1500°F over a period of about four hours.
After the initial firing, pieces are re-shaped and "fire-polished" by firing a second
time, to remove any grinding performed (done to true-up a specific shape
or remove any rough edges).
