Moxie Sorbet Designs is a fused glass studio that specializes in handmade glass accessories for the home. The process of creating a glass piece begins with hand cutting sheet glass into a base form. Accents are added using frit (chunks of glass), scrap sheet glass and/or powdered glass. Each piece is then put in the kiln to be fused, usually a 9-12 hour cycle. After fusing, the pieces are cold worked by hand and put back in the kiln to be slumped into or draped over molds. The final step involves lightly hand sanding any sharp edges, polishing, and cleaning the glass.
