By taking a thoughtful approach to using the vitrigraph kiln we will create cane and murrini that rival those created in a hot shop. Capitalizing on the ways glass can be arranged in and flows from a crucible, students in this innovative workshop will learn to create reproducible decorative canes and intricate murrini using the vitrigraph kiln. These elements can and will then, immediately, be used in other kiln-glass projects.
We will be pulling hot glass from the vitrigraph kiln, students must be comfortable handling hot glass.
Students will also need to be able to confidently cut approximately (30) 3"-5" circles out of 3mm glass. Glass cutting is introduced in this workshop but you need to have experience prior to the class.
You need to bring your own circle cutter, if you have one, that you are comfortable with using.
All supplies needed for the class and lunch each day. We will have circle cutters (if you don't own one), safety glasses, etc., but if you have your own tools that you are comfortable using, please bring them with you.
After the classes, we will have a limited number of Olympic HB89E with 3 key controller "just used for this class" vitrigraph kilns for sale. If you are interested (whether or not you are signing up for the class) send me an email and I will start a list of interest.
