Welcome to Fusing Ideas Contemporary Glass!

I’m Jill Bagnall, owner/designer-maker and dreamer.

Fusing Ideas is all about glass; I use high quality art glass, modern equipment and some pretty ancient processes to create hand crafted glass in my studio in rural Shropshire. And loving every moment, taking up the challenge of this sometimes-unpredictable media. I know, whatever the result, it will be enriched by the unique interaction between glass and light.

Discover my kiln-formed glass range which includes unique, fabulously functional open ‘vessels’, art and colourful jewellery.
Or join me for a workshop, enjoy playing safely in my studio and make your own glorious glass.
