fused

glass

Plan to spend about two hours at the open studio. You can pick your project. We will help you create a fused glass sun catcher, ornament or jewelry piece, your choice. You will cut and assemble your glass fragments into a one of a kind design. We will then fire your piece in our glass kiln up to temperatures of 1450 degrees where your glass will fuse into one piece of art. You will be able to pick up your artwork the following week.

note:

ALL TOOLS AND MATERIALS NEEDED FOR EACH PROJECT ARE INCLUDED IN THE PRICE. MOST CLASSES INCLUDE COPPER AS THE BASE MATERIAL, HOWEVER YOU MAY CHOOSE TO UPGRADE TO STERLING SILVER.
