Barbara J Cashman has been a glass fuser since 1979 and was an early pioneer in commercial
fused glass tile, opening GlasTile Inc in 1990, which produced quality handmade production
and custom glass tile. A creative problem-solver, Barbara was encouraged to find
a safe, non-carcinogenic refractory product that the hobbyist and professional alike
would be comfortable to use in their glass art processes. From there, we have added
a special rigidizer for the refractory blanket and an easy-to-use devitrification
solution for use on glasses prone to devitrify.
Barbara resides in Greensboro NC with her husband John O’Brien & presently, 6 furry
“kids”: Samba, Tango, Jitterbug, Foxy Fluffy Butt, Misty & Cinnamon.
