Learn all about glass fusing and slumping techniques by creating an 11.5 “fused glass serving plate. This is a new plate size we have never taught. These are food safe. Students will create their own design based on the color and type of glass they want to use. They can select from a variety of colors and forms such as sheet glass, stringers, fruit and confetti. During the creating process students will have the opportunity to use saws and grinders, but previous glass cutting is not mandatory. The end result is a one-of-a-kind piece of art. Long hair needs to be pulled back and long pants and close toed shoes should be worn. Students will be called to pick up their pieces after kiln firing is complete.
