Images in Glass Workshop

Susan Hirsch

Fused Glass Artist

An artist whose work embodies bold design and clear focus. She holds a B.A. in Painting and Printmaking from Herron School of Art. Her 25 years in Graphic Design has garnered critical acclaim as a Creative Director and Graphic Designer. Ten years ago, she began fusing glass and fell in love. She opened Fire Fusion Studio and has been showing, selling, and teaching glass classes at her studio in San Marcos Ca. and at Rayzist Photomask in Vista Ca. Represented by the Contemporary Fine Art Gallery in La Jolla, she is in many private collections in the USA and England.

A great way to introduce images to fused glass. The Rayzist Photomask system combined with enamels allows amazing detail in line and one color photographs to fused glass. Create multi layer effects for unlimited effects!
