In Topic: Fusing Glass With Clay

But even though all looks like it works perfectly and u love the effect, according to at least one large art glass company it will very likely separate eventually. I was told the properties of art glass and pottery clay are not compatible and fusing the two will not work long term and they strongly recommend against it.

I would strongly recommend contacting the art glass companies b4 using on anything other than Raku and even then adjust how I used it. I have been told their glass is not compatible and even though it may appear to fit it is likely to fail over time and of course if its in any type of utility use that could/would be dangerous. 


I don't usually get caught up in these debates but since the glass companies themselves advise against it even though they stand the most to gain convinces me to listen. I would hate for something I made cause someone a problem or even harm down the road.

Beautiful work! Hey it getting more and more mainstream every day. I think another prohibition is pretty much dropping by the wayside.

Hey ShellS, welcome aboard.


You mentioned self taught but not your level. You just getting started in clay or are you an old pro?


Its great that you decided to post. Now this place is more than an entertainment or research tool, we're your pottery friends. Even though we don't see each other face to face we are all just hanging out BSing about pottery much like any group of potters would and if you hit a snag you can get immediate help from some pretty heavy hitters.


Wish I could roll with a group like this in the real world :-)

... And won't I be thrilled if I start a young person on the road of a wonderful clay journey that lasts a lifetime.

nah, they will do it until they are 22 and then come back to it when they are 50. Then it will last the rest of a lifetime :rolleyes:
