Fused Glass - Warm Glass - Kiln Formed Glass

These are three different names for the same thing, the heating of glass in a kiln to melt it. In this process, glass is cut or sometimes crushed and then fused (melted) together into a single piece. After it has cooled, it may be shaped by placing it over a mold in the kiln and slumping it. With an eye for color and a creative spirit, the possibilities are endless.

Our Skutt GM22CS industrial model kiln with computerize Glass Master Controller is versatile enough to handle all of our needs.  A 4.5 cubic foot kiln with a twenty-inch shelf, it has a clamshell design and a viewing window.  This is a great kiln to do fusing, slumping, and casting for warm glass. As with all the equipment at LampLight Studio, we selected the Skutt because it is the best.

The studio has grinders, saws and a full arrangment of hand tools to get you started.

Spectrum 96 Warm Glass

We work in Spectrum and Uroboros System 96 glass because of the beauty of the color in this glass. We have a varied selection of glass for sell in up to 2' x 2' sheets.

The number "96" signifies the "coefficient of expansion" for this glass. Kiln formed glass requires that all of the glass which is melted together have the same rate of expansion and contraction when heated. Otherwise there is stress between the different glass when it cools
