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, and which still produces quality
handmade production and custom glass tile today. 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, 4 furry
“kids”: Samba, Tango, Jitterbug and Fox.
