Gil Reynolds Fused Glass

“Desk Top Glass Blowing” with Gil Reynolds November 7-9, 2014

In three day class you will learn how to do the molten glass dance with The Murphy Fire Bucket, a small furnace that heats up to 2150º F in three minute. It is used to take glass to a liquid state so it can be blown, shaped, twisted or pulled. Designed to sit on a workbench, The Murphy Fire Bucket is the heart of a short tool hot glass system that is used to make components for fusing such as twists, confetti, stringers, pattern bars and millefiori. It can also be used to make finished blown glass items like paperweights, perfume bottles, vessels, and rondels. If you have always wanted to play with hot glass but were a little intimidated by the large furnaces then this is the class for you. It is small enough for close work yet hot enough to get the results you want without a lot of expense.

Class size is limited so sign up early.

All of the glass and mold materials are provided. Lunch options are available.

Friday – Sunday; 9:30am – 4:00pm $600 Oregon Glass Guild Members $570

Fusion HQ Classes 2013

Create a Class – If you don’t see the class or dates that work for you listed, consider creating your own class. Because so many of our students are after a specific technique one of the best solutions is to let them set their own curriculum. Both Gil and Carmen have extensive experience in teaching just about any glass technique you can imagine. A partial list includes: kiln casting, pattern bars, fire bucket techniques, silk screen printing, slumping and mold making, pate-de-verre, liquid stringer, Flexi-Glass, working large, working small, production processes, reactive glasses, photographing your art work and marketing. All you need to do is let us know;

- A) What techniques you are interested in?

- B) Your skill level?

- C) How long a class do you want; 1/2 day, 1-day, 2-day, 3-day or 4-day?

- D) What dates fit your schedule?

- E) Do you want a private or group class?

Once we have you basic information we will set a custom class. Bring some friends or we can open it up to our mailing list and turn it into a group class. This is a great opportunity to have fun and learn the specific techniques that are important to you. Fees will be based on the number of students, be we can work with you to keep it under budget.

Fusion Headquarters was established in 1981 by Gil and Carmen Reynolds. Over the last 30 years they have earned a reputation as leading innovators of the contemporary glass fusing and kiln forming movements. In 1997 they moved to 2.5 areas in the beautiful Yamhill County right in the heart of wine country. They periodically open there their fully equipped 4500 sq.ft. fusing studio to other artists wanting to learn more about kiln formed glass processes. If you visit, come prepared to enjoy the spectacular hillside view, fine dinning and entertaining and informative atmosphere that are all part of the Fusion Glass experience.
