Fused Glass: Try it yourself!

Multiple pieces of glass are layered, placed in a kiln and heated until they fuse together into a single piece.  Types of glass include transparent, opaque, iridized, and dichroic.  From cutting to kiln, let me lead you through the basics to design your very own one-of-a-kind, decorative or functional glass art.

Make your own Meditational Designs

This class is a one up on the adult coloring book rage.  Coloring has proven to be a meditative experience.  Why not make your own?

A radial design is an image that appears to radiate from a central point, like the spokes from the hub of a wheel.  By using straight lines, these designs appear geometric in appearance.  By using looser, more free-form lines, designs appear and feel more organic.

This class will explore multiple techniques using line, shape, pattern and repetition.  Tools include the use of a straight edge, compass, stencils, tracing and transfer.  Multiple coloring materials and techniques will be explored.  Copies can be made and shared amongst the group.
