What is Kiln Formed Glass?

Do you want intricate designs, unique colours, and beautiful shapes?

Glass that dances in the light, refracts rays of rainbow light, and embodies the shapes of your imagination.

By using a glass kiln, we are able to fuse different glasses — moulding them together and shaping them into intricate designs. And by incorporating different coloured glass under extreme temperatures of up to 800 degrees celsius, stunning visual effects are created.

No matter your desired colour, shape, or texture of glass — there’s a combination of materials and kiln formed glass techniques that’ll create the exact glass piece you want.

Do you have a design in mind?

Why Choose Us?

From creating commemorative bowls for SBS TV, replicating the Magna Carta for the Supreme Court in London, to creating residential glass sculptures in people’s backyards…

By using the highest quality glass, time tested glass kiln techniques, and the flair that only someone with a deep passion for glasswork can have — We have created countless projects, fused every type of glass, and materialised the visions of every client we serve.

It isn’t an exaggeration to say that anything you can imagine, we can create.

First, we create a mould that matches your design. Then by using a specialised kiln made for glasswork, your glass is placed over the mould we created. Reaching temperatures as high as 800 degrees celsius, your glass then slumps into place.

Then by using advanced glasswork techniques, we shape your glass into perfection. Ready for you to display and admire.

By working alongside designers and architects, there’s nothing we can’t create. Whether you have a complete design in mind, a first draft, or nothing but a brief idea — we can polish your ideas and turn them into a reality within your glass.

    Fantastic service…Had a semi-framed installed (custom dimensions). Although price was on par with some of the other competitors (even the bigger companies), the immediate attention, professionalism and honesty of Mark, was what made the decision to go with.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a kiln?

A kiln is similar to a furnace. It is thermally insulated and this allows temperatures within to reach as high as 800 degrees celsius. While there are kilns for pottery and claywork, the kilns we use are specifically made for glass. This allows us to mould and fuse different types of glass together to create the piece you want.

How is glass fused in a kiln?

Glasses which are compatible for fusing, are stacked together and placed into a kiln. They then reach extremely high temperatures, at which the glasses melt. This is when they fuse together. However, for more intricate designs, there is a step beyond that. By using advanced glasswork techniques, the fused glass can be moulded to create intricate patterns, designs, and be specifically shaped.

Why is a kiln used?

A glass kiln is used because temperatures can be controlled. This allows us to consistently create amazing pieces and retain a high quality of service.

Is fused glass better?

Fused glass is generally more durable. If the glass combined using a different method, the separate pieces will have different physical properties. This means the glass is easier to break off at that point. However, if the glass is fused through the process of heating and moulding, the different glasses become one piece and is much less likely to break.
