The art of glass is found in many different forms. Ralph and Frances Primofiore have worked with glass for many years to design and construct beautiful art. From traditional stained glass to unusual fused and slumped glass, unique creations are formed.
Several steps are required to complete each piece. The different designs are achieved by cutting glass in various shapes to create the desired effect. For fused glass pieces, the glass is melded together in a kiln at temperatures ranging between 1250 and 1365 degrees to bond the glass together. Once the glass is blended, the piece is “slumped” in a mold to take on the chosen shape.
Because of the creativity and the variations that can be achieved with different techniques, unlimited pieces are born. Each piece is unique and “one-of-a-kind”. The craftsmanship that is required to construct the pieces takes years of experience, experimentation and is directly based upon the artists talents.
From tea lights to clocks, and everything in between, the Primofiore’s truly create works of art.
