Making Glass Cabochons

Design by Dinah Ihle


A set of 1" x 1‑1/4" fused cabochons decorated with flat glass, stringers, and frit remnants. This project offers a great way to use up the scrap glass that collects in every artist’s studio. Dams are made from pieces of kiln shelf, a piece of glass is cut to the desired size, and the glass is decorated with the scraps of glass plus silver foil or copper foil pieces. The decorated glass is then fired and cut into cabochon-size pieces, which are polished on a flat lap, then fire-polished to finish.
