Students will explore the classic design elements of squares and rectangles created by pieces of opaque and transparent glass. The lines between, the negative spaces, are made with careful introduction of finely ground dark glass frit once the main design is completed. Students will have the option of including specialty glass elements that contain streamers of fine glass threads in their design process. Thoughtful use of hand tools, strip cutters, and grinders will be encouraged to create a lovely finished piece.
You MUST have taken an introductory fused glass plate class with VisArts in order to register. Finished fused pieces will be ready no later than 10 business days after class.
