Jo Down’s wishsticks – discovered in the Eden Project’s shop on holiday in Cornwall one year. Fell in love with the simplicity and beauty of these and this was probably the start of my glass fusing love.
I had an amazing workshop with Barbara, the artist behind Clerestory. What a fantastic start for my journey into glass fusing. (and her food is also amazing!)
Fused Glass Fanatics – a facebook group, full of inspiration and general way of picking up tips and asking questions.
FusedGlass.org – A useful resource
Brad Walker’s book comes up highly recommended in forums and I found his website packed with info at warmglass.com
