Fish Fusion

Jayme Levin's avatar Jayme Levin

Fish Fusion– a fusion of freshwater and saltwater fish coexisting, consists of fused glass panels, layered three deep, to give the effect of an aquarium . It creates a unique three-dimensional art piece through which fused glass and light come to life transforming nature as never before. Fish Fusion was designed by layering cut glass heated in a kiln in series of cycles and held at a specific temperature until the pieces fuse together. The technique used to create the appearance for each piece determines the temperatures used in the kiln. The glass is then allowed to cool slowly. This is the annealing process to prevent breakage and makes the glass a strong finished piece. The art of fused glass is a journey, from the design to choosing the colors and pieces of glass to cutting the glass then layering and firing in the kiln.
