Glass Applications

A complete lecture course of the various kinds of glass used in art glass applications will be covered as well as those most important in glass fusing.

Glass Fusing

A full discussion of all aspects of glass fusing will be followed by a hands-on demonstration of fused glass in the rapid fire kiln for immediate observation by all students.

Each student will then make his or her own fused glass pendant and earrings and/or broach.  The class will finish with a demonstration of how to glue findings and, time permitting, a lesson on the application of the bezel.
