Working with cut, slumped and fused glass is an exciting and cool (although fiery hot) process to learn. This workshop introduces the beginning glass enthusiast to understand the properties and techniques of glass slumping, limited mold decoration and color work. Participants will explore the dynamics of glass heating and cooling and working with higher and lower firing techniques.
This workshop will prepare participants with tricks and skills of how to cut glass and melt it together; how to cool it, (annealing) and how various forms of glass can and cannot mix, (compatibility) and something about how the temperature and air within the kiln controls the processes, (atmosphere). We will learn how to finish these pieces and have some amazing objects that we can keep forever.
