Hi – I just purchased a fused glass square pendant and the back, sides and front were perfectly squared. The front side of the pendant is flat. Can anyone explain how that is done? Also, the piece almost feels like resin instead of glass, and I am sure this is a glass piece? Thank youAugust 26, 2011 at 5:40 pm #11113
Probably fired as a bar then cut, cleaned and fire polished.

It’s definitely not a bar. The layers have inclusions in between and I can see the way the piece was made. Someone suggested maybe the artist put a shelf on top to flatten?August 26, 2011 at 6:58 pm #11115
Show a picture then.

Maybe it is a bar, however she has the silver inclusions in different layersAugust 27, 2011 at 8:11 am #11112
Yes it appears to be a bar or sheet cut to shape, edges polished, hole drilled.
Bars are most often made in layers, dammed and then cut after fusing. This of course, may be made differently. But without closer examination – you wouldn’t want to send it to me would you – it isn’t possible to determine definitively.

I’m pretty sure that is from GlassFancy. She explains how she makes them on her web site
