Fritography is created using ground glass to create a picture. Various grades of ground glass from powder to coarse are used to create texture and depth. The ground glass is layered requiring multiple fusings. Ground glass is applied to a base layer which is two pieces of glass fully fused together. The ground glass is manipulated on the 'canvas' with paint brushes, foam brushes, Q-tips, syringes and anything else I can find to arrange the ground glass where I want it to go. I have to determine the base level of ground glass and then do the first tack fusing. Then I build from there to add more color, different dimensions and details.
I many cases I grind my own glass using a crusher and multiple screens with continually smaller holes to sift the frit.
I only use my own original photography as inspiration for my Fritography.
