Amazon After you put together your work, you are ready to put it in a kiln. You need very high temperature (like 1500 degrees F) in order to melt glass to a point where they can be fused seamlessly. People think a kiln is big, but there are small kilns one can buy, like this one:

After it's fused and cools down, it looks like a bulky piece of glass. If this is for decoration, you might not need to do any further processing. I don't know about you, but I am a practical person and I want my product to be something useful. I would want to slump it into some shape such as a small plate.

Here's a plate that I slumped into the shape of a funny, uniquely shaped dish or ashtray:
