Flower Class

Explore the art of fused glass.  Students in this two day class will complete two flowers.  The first day will be designing, and arranging the glass to form a flower.  The glass will be fused in a kiln and then slumped in a mold to give it a pleasant shape.  The first week the flower pieces will be cut and arranged in preparation for fusing. Once this is done the flowers will be put in a kiln to fuse, then slumped into a mold that will create the flower shape (a total of 48 hours in the kiln).The second day of class the flower will be assembled to give it a stem and gold or silver paint can be added as an embellishment.  Flowers will be ready to take home at the end of the second week.
