Details

This class is a great introduction to the "pâte de verre" (French for "paste of glass") technique, which uses granules of glass to create a three dimensional form. We'll provide you with a plaster silica mold of a bowl and demonstrate pâte de verre methods and design options. You'll personalize the project using a palette of glass powders and fill the shell of the mold with a frit paste. Your piece will the be kiln-dried and back-filled prior to firing. The final piece, which will be available for pick-up a few days after class, will be a hollow form that, despite its delicate and sugary appearance, is a strong and long lasting object. (Bowls shown are 4 inches in diameter and 2 inches high.)
