Fused Glass Art

Making wonderful Fused Glass Art  is easy! Let me show you how.
Wheeled glass cutters are essential for creating Fused Glass Art . I use it to cut and shape vitreous glass and stained glass. It can also be used to cut smalti. The wheeled cutters make cleaner cuts than tile nippers. The two carbide wheels (or steel, if you buy cheap cutters) are fixed in position. Instead of scoring and breaking, the wheels apply even pressure to the top and bottom sides of the glass, causing it to fracture along the line of the wheels.
