Welcome to DarteGlass and 2021!

Our goal is to provide both a superior customer experience and tremendous value for our customers by creating handmade fused glass  designs such as these.

Sue Darte:

I love working with fused glass, and try not to limit my experimentation, by adding variety and creating unique pieces. Commission art work for customers and art galleries is encouraged. I love seeing the joy that my creations bring to my friends and clients. I hope you will enjoy them as well.

There is no brick and mortar storefront. I add everything to this website and also display by work at various events. To see my schedule, please click here.

Fused Glass

Fusing glass is the process of creating multiple firings, at high temperatures, in glass kilns. Firings, in the kiln, can take many days to complete, it’s about having patience. Pieces fire in the kilns at temperatures as high as 1500 degrees to melt the glass into the desired design. All pieces fire in stages (segments), from a slow ramp up to the desired temperature to an annealing process that prevents the glass from shattering. Next the glass slowly cools down to room temperature, and the design is complete.
