How Cremulets Are Made


The diagram on the left shows the basic process for making a Cremulet: Some cremains are placed between two or more layers of fusible glass and fired at a high temperature in a glass kiln.
When the layers of glass fuse together, as in the diagram on the right, the cremains remain in their original position, preserved and protected within what is now a single piece of glass. The final look of the cremulet depends on the the colors of the original layers of glass, and we often use a special glass called "dichroic" to add the shimmering accents you'll see in many of the samples.
