MY DICHROIC GLASS PROCESS
This piece was made with bullseye dichroic glass, only found in the USA. I cut out the base glass shape, then designed the piece. To cut the glass, I first score it then use pliers to make the actual cut.
I fired this piece in my kiln up to 1800 degrees using what's called a Tack fire and is slightly lighter than a full fuse fire because it simply "tacks" the various glass pieces together. It does not fully melt them into each other. With tack firing, you can still see the individual pieces of glass I laid out originally, and the texture is maintained as well as the color of the glass. It is more of a rough fire, but it doesn’t dim the colors in the glass as much.
After I fire a piece of glass, I use a Dremel rotary tool to round off the sides so the piece is not sharp. I also sand down the back of each piece so they are comfortable to wear against bare skin when needed. After this is complete I also do a final "fire polish" which is a kiln technique I use that quickly heats the glass just to the point that the top layer is heated and "polished". This gives the pieces a nice sheen to them, and eliminates any of the grinding marks on the corners made by the rotary tool that you can especially see when sanding down the black base glass.
Finally, I use a silver or gold bail on each piece and bake it on for extra security.
