Three-Section Fused Glass Platter

CLASS ID: 4T22
Date/Time: Saturday, March 17, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Kim Bakken-Parr & Lee Parr
In this introductory class, students will first learn about the different types and forms of glass such as sheet, frit, stringer, powder and confetti. Glass safety is also discussed, along with learning how to use the different tools involved in glass cutting, sawing and grinding. This 5” X 17” platter is initially designed by building different layers of glass on one flat piece of glass. After the piece is designed it is then fired in a kiln by the instructor. After the first firing it will be fired a second time to get the flat glass piece to slump into a mold. It is the mold that gives it the three-section design. Glass cutting experience is helpful, but not necessary. All students should wear long pants and closed-toed shoes. Long hair needs to be pulled back and put into a binder. Students will be called to pick up their pieces once kiln firing is complete. Bring a lunch.
