Fused Glass - Program
Artopia is the premiere Glass Fusing studio in Canada and part of the worldwide Delphi Glass Creativity Program. Artopia is also a Dealer for Delphi Glass.
Glass fusing has become extremely popular in the last few years, and at Artopia we have dedicated a large part of our studio to Glass Fusing fun. As the name implies, fused glass or "kiln-fired" glass is glass that is created by "fusing" or melting together pieces of compatible art glass in a kiln to a temperature high enough to cause them to fuse together into a permanently blended unit or new piece of glass.
When our Artopia Ambassador visits your school to complete a glass project, he/she will bring everything needed to complete the project. The art pieces will be taken back and fired at Artopia and returned to your school in about 7 to 14 days depending on the time of year.
Artopia can visit your school with as little as 7 days' notice as we stock a large selection of glass and supplies.
