Details

This class picks up where Richard’s popular Tapestry class leaves off. Working with similar part sheets as those used for Tapestry, participants will explore several ways to cut and assemble strips and shapes to create rich patterns and visual texture to use in their own fused glass work.

The class explores several approaches to pattern making, beginning with inspiration such as fiber/fabric (weaving, tapestry, bargello quilting, basketry, etc.), nature (plants, water, etc.), and mathematics and geometry (proportion, grids, lines, circles, etc.).

You’ll make several sample pieces as you explore the vast potential of working with pattern sheets, including methods for cutting the sheet, on-edge strip construction, thick layered blocks, and slumping and forming methods. Color, opacity, and transparency will be considered also. Many of the techniques in this class can be adapted and used with other patterned glass.

Each person will develop her/his own patterns through sketching and mock-ups. Techniques will be explored and developed as needed to achieve these patterns including multiple firings; cutting and re-assembling; and coldworking and finishing.

Prerequisite: Tapestry, with Richard Parrish, and solid glass cutting skills (participants will cut many strips and shapes from fused part sheets that are approximately 4 mm thick).
