Dean Derby started making his fun fused glass windchimes, funcatchers and ornaments in 2005. He works with sheet glass – the glass used in stained glass art. All glass is hand cut and arranged on top of a specially prepared clear glass.
He fires the hand-built work in electric kilns in a process known as “Tack Fusing”. Each piece is hand finished and accented with brass, copper, glass beads and glass millefiore.
