vessels and glass sinks can be nerve racking to figure out with all the firing
schedules, damning systems, cold working, drilling and such. This three day
class can help you navigate through the process. Day one will start with a discussion on
"How thick is thick enough?" We'll continue with the actual composing
and firing of a 12" wide 1/2" thick piece, while discussing firing
theory and mold materials. During the
second day while we wait for our glass to cool we'll set up for combing
demonstrations, prep our molds and discuss various edge finishing techniques.
Next, we'll slump the glass from the previous day and get ready for day
three. On day three we'll rotate between
making tiles using different fusing techniques or products and practice
drilling holes of various sizes. When
our glass comes out of the kiln we'll take care of any edge work that needs to
be done. You'll leave this class with a
beautiful large piece and the knowledge of how achieve the same on your own.
You'll also have experience combing, drilling holes, finishing edges and have
some tiles demonstrating new ideas. This
is an advance class.
Must have a working understanding of the fusing process.
