Slumped, Fused, Cast, and Formed Glass Artists
« on: July 18, 2019, 01:19:28 PM »
I have been doing a lot of research into fused glass recently.  This seems to be a relatively new and growing area of glass collecting, and there does not appear to be as much information about these glass artists as there is for blown glass studio and art glass.  I started collecting names of glass artists so that I could have a resource to help identify signatures on pieces.  This has grown to around 175 names, and I thought it might be helpful to other members if I posted it on the GMB.  I have sorted it by first name, as we can usually identify the first letter of a signature.  There is so much really fabulous glass appearing in this category, that I wondered whether it might be helpful to have a dedicated section on the board for reference.

I received an email in response to this topic, from a lady who couldn't post a reply.  I have pasted it in below.

"I was reading your slumped, fused and cast aside (ok I just added that last bit automatically as it was all describing me) thread, and i can't reply there.
There are, I have found various different qualities of fused glass - some is done at higher temperatures than others, and the different colours end up melting into each other - a good example of that is the work by Emma Butler Cole-Aitken. She does stained glass - but uses fusing techniques too.
I've got a couple of her little birdies. Jethro and Amber. Each one has its own name. You might like to study some of her work.

cheery cheers,
sue"

Hi Cat, if this is an area of interest we can create you a forum for it (like we did for the trinket sets forum) and you can populate it with your research as you go along if that helps?

Thank you for the offer, Anne.  I do think the range and quality of these items is growing very fast as techniques develop since the original fused mosaic ashtrays started appearing, and I suspect we will see more of it appearing on the board.  However, I need to stay focused on the big clear for now at least.  I will add to this thread if I find any new names and, hopefully, others will too.

OK, thanks Cat. I agree with you that it's a growth area, and one which we don't yet know enough about.

I'm adding another name to your list: my friend Penni Simpson, who creates slumped and fused glass in Cumbria not far from me. I have a couple of pieces of her work that I've shown on the board previously https://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,60281.0.html

Jane Drysdale in Crieff.

I have recently discovered some incredible work by Ruth Shelly in Cardiff.

(Cat, I was reading your list, I suspect Toots Zumsky should be Toots Zynsky. And thanks for adding the reply function, Anne.  :-* )
Cheers, Sue (M)

Sue you're right of course.......two typos on the same name 😳.....maybe Anne could change it on the list and add the other names you've both mentioned.
