Cast Glass Quilts – The Process

A lot of patrons and other artists ask me how I make the glass quilts.  As I explain that glass quilt is cast from a real fabric quilt piece, I start to see the wheels turning and receive questions like, “So you mean you put the glass on the quilt and put it into the kiln Doesn’t it burn up?”  A picture is worth a thousand words, but a video is even better.  So I compiled photos I’ve taken making various quilts over the last year to better explain the work involved.
