Welcome to my obsession with glass. All the glass I use is lead free, food safe and made in Oregon I use different techniques and make most of my own molds. Raking is one of the more dangerous techniques I use. It involves layering glass in the kiln and firing it 400 degrees hotter than regular fusing. When the glass has melted all together I then open the kiln and manipulate the molten glass. It is dangerous and time consuming but worth the results. I am currently working on making my own casting molds. Stay tuned for some exciting new pieces!
