Class Info pdf:Particular About Particulates – Frit with a Purpose

This 6-day intensive explores the making of kiln-formed murrine and its use, in combination with crushed glass, to create kiln-cast objects. The selective placement of certain types of frit, as in traditional pate de verre processes, can offer the caster more color and patterning control within a casting.  For this course, murrine/cane slices will be fabricated and incorporated as a type of specialized frit.

Students will learn to construct shaped and patterned cane from sheet, rod and frit via several techniques. From the resulting cast murrine, participants will have the opportunity to create one or two small cast forms by selectively orienting and fuse-casting the cane pieces into a larger form.

The class will focus on formal kiln-casting concerns and procedures relative to using cane for special cast effects.
