About The Glass Giraffe
I am Carol Korfin – a.k.a. The Glass Giraffe. I create one-of-a-kind Fused Glass Art - no two pieces are ever exactly alike. I chose my name by “fusing” my love of all things giraffe with my love of glass art.
Each piece I design is lovingly created in my head before drawing and cutting the elements from the finest quality glass and firing it in a kiln made especially for glass fusing. Many pieces require multiple firings to achieve the designs and textures to my satisfaction. The final firing (called slumping) is when the piece takes its finished form as a dish, bowl, vase, pendant, etc.
I use a variety of glass types – such as translucent, opaque, dichroic, iridescent, frit, millefiore, confetti, rods, stringers and noodles.
Please enjoy looking at my portfolio of work! I look forward to having my creations come live with you and give you as much pleasure as I have had making them.
