Linda Brown has been a
professional artist for thirty years. She first
worked in clay, fabric, and paint. Sixteen years
ago she started working in glass. Stained and
leaded glass and later fused glass became her
mediums of choice. Many of Linda's pieces
combined leaded with fused glass.
Fused glass is the melting together of two or
more compatible glasses into one single piece of
glass. At "full fuse", about 1500 degrees
Fahrenheit, the glass flows together to create a
flat uniform surface.
Plates, bowls, serving trays, and sculptural
pieces have been "slumped" into or "draped" over
a mold to form its final shape. This is done in
a separate firing.
The surfaces are lead free, permanent, and
nontoxic, making functional pieces suitable for
serving any food.
Linda specializes in custom work. She finds
