"I'm primarily a photographer, but I also fuse dichroic glass pendants. Because my wife is blind, she couldn't appreciate the colors or patterns on the smooth kind, no matter how much I described them to her. So I started fusing at lower temperatures. I wanted the glass to retain its texture so that she could feel the pieces and have an idea of what they look like."
