Using frit and powder you will learn several different methods of exact color placement. We will also cover the use of reinvestments (inclusions) in the mold. We will have in class discussions covering firing schedules and the use of temperature to attain specific goals.
By the end of this class you should feel confident in pouring a mold, packing it with glass, and firing it on your own. Pate de verre is a process which encourages patience but also lends it’s self to experimentation and unusual expression. Expect to work hard and have fun.
