People have been fusing glass since ancient Egypt. While it takes many forms, in essence the artist takes variously colored glass, all formulated to have the same rates of expansion, and melts it together in a kiln into a new form. In the case of my bowls, first I cut a clear or colored base piece on which I layer a precisely fitted pattern of glass pieces with different colors and surface qualities. This is fused at 1500 F degrees. The consequent flat disks are then returned to the kiln in a stainless steel mold to be slowly heated and slumped to conform to the mold.
Bowls currently available to general public from my studio are marked AFSD* and shown all together on this fused glass page.

One of the things that an artist can do with the fusing process that is very hard to do with blown glass is to get geometric shapes with sharp linear edges. It makes sense to work with this interesting facet of the medium.
