A Brief Description of Our Glass

When in a kiln, sheets of glass can become beautiful and functional pieces of art when heated to temperatures that fuse the glass together or change its shape

The traditional techniques of bonding glass in a kiln include glass melting (fusing), thermoforming (slumping), glass paste (pate de vere) and glass casting.

Working with the distinct features of glass, Deborah and Joesph Zingaro of Baker-Hart Studio attempt to create works that are artistic as well as practical.

A Note About Bubbles:

Bubbles that appear in our fusing projects are caused by air trapped in the glass.  Though it might seem that these bubbles detract from the finished product, we believe these bubbles in a finished piece give the work character and add to the attractiveness of the work.
