painting the sumi-e
"Fused glass painting" is fusion of "sumi-e" and "glass fusing". Sumi-e, also known as wash painting in the west, is Japanese and Chinese traditional India-ink painting. When I make an original picture,use the sumi-e technique.

sumi-e
First,an original picture is finished.

using base glass plate and grisaille
Next,it is painted on the glass according to the original picture.I use base glass plate instead of paper and use grisaille(*) instead of India-ink.
 *Grisaille is a black metal powder for stained glass painting.

heated to 1430degree F in the kiln
The grisaille infiltrates into the glass when heated to 1430degree F in the kiln.

Then,it is fused to emboss with the colored glass powder and thin glass sheet pieces. The process of confirming the condition of the color, painting ,putting the powder and fusing is repeated several times.
