Creating a sense of space and depth in fused glass is accomplished by exploring a variety of skill building techniques to create various effects and components.  These new skills can then be used to convey your thoughts, your feelings towards the environment around you expressed in kiln formed glass.

The techniques learned in this workshop will allow you to work as abstract or realistic as you want. Using different glass elements (glass powders, frits, stringers, enamels, and various unconventional tools) allows you to create shading, texture, and other design elements that become encapsulated within and on the surface of the piece. It is a celebration of the transparency, color and vibrancy that only glass as a medium can capture.

 

The glass plays with the light, changes the color of it and reflects it in many different ways within one single piece. The onlooker sees the glass object in a different way every time it is viewed. It is exciting and challenging to create a piece using this method.

We will be building a palette of techniques that allows a wide range of painterly effects through specific in-class exercises, and then apply it to small studies, and larger compositions. Time permitting, you will also be given a chance to work on and fire your work more than once.
