Historically fused glass has been very expensive due to manufacturing techniques but our new range of fused glass tiles offers a luxury product, manufactured using traditional techniques for a fraction of the cost normally associated with this style of decorative art glass. Combining Fused Glass tiles with an etched glass background is one of the most effective combinations for fused glass and it is one of the more popular requests that we receive.
What is Fused Glass?
Fused glass is created by slowly heating the pieces of cut, coloured glass in a kiln until they fuse together, creating one piece of glass. To fuse glass successfully it is essential that the pieces of glass used are “tested compatible” for fusing otherwise the glass can become brittle and liable to break. For this reason Leadbitter Glass only uses the best materials from around the UK and the world. Fused glass and Fused glass tiles are very versatile and they can be integrated within most decorative glass styles and applications.
Our large gallery already features many Fused Glass designs for doors and you can view these by clicking the black door and then select your door style. Whilst browsing you can change the colour of each door to suit your specific door colour and this is a great way of getting a true feel to how your Fused glass panels will look ‘in the flesh’. As with all products supplied by Leadbitter Glass, we can also create Fused glass door, window and fanlight designs from your own specific ideas/drawings.
