Fused Glass:


Our newest addition to The Claypen!  You’ll have fun creating one of a kind masterpieces that are both functional and decorative, perfect for gifts or to use and display in your home.

Fused glass projects use a variety of glass in different shapes, sizes and colors. These glass pieces are combined, arranged and layered with an endless combination of interesting designs and dimensions.  We have cutting tools if desired and are always ready to  show you how to use them.  No experience is needed to create fused glass projects – just a love of  creating!  When a design is complete, it is fused in our kiln.  Depending on the project, may be put through a second time to give it a  shape other than flat.

You can make a wide variety of projects in all shapes and sizes with fused glass.  Dishes, vases, suncatchers, pendants, votive holders, nightlights, business card holders, and more.  If you’re stumped for ideas, ask us about our pre – cut kits – just assemble according to directions and you’ll have a great project just like that.  You can also ask us to see our idea book or visit our fused glass board on pinterest!  (https://www.pinterest.com/TheClaypen/glass-fusing/)

To work with glass and our tools, we require our customers to be  ages 8 and up for safety reasons .  We do, however, recognize that our younger customers will want in on the fun too, so we have made some pre – fired pieces for children 5 and up to use.  No sharp edges!  They can just arrange however they like and glue into place.

Cost:  Cost varies by project size and can range from $14 – $75.  There is no studio fee for glass projects.
