Tack fusing is an effective method for creating textured works in kilnformed glass.
In tack fusing, glass is fired within a range that creates enough heatwork for the material to fuse while maintaining the desired amount of form and texture.
Tack fusing often results in pieces with varying thicknesses. This raises technical issues. In this lesson, you’ll learn the effects of firing to different tack fuse temperatures. We’ll also cover firing schedule considerations to avoid thermal shock and promote effective annealing.
Finally, we’ll follow a project through tack fuse and slump firings.
