Learn the basics of pâte de verre from start to finish while making a thin-walled, kilnformed bowl in this hands-on workshop. (The term literally means "paste of glass" in French.) Make a plaster silica mold from a model, pack it with glass, fire it, then divest and finish it. Students will have access to a broad palette of colored frit and samples to help predict and understand fired qualities. Demonstrations will include various techniques of working with glass powders against the mold, working with color reactions, as well as how to back-fill a packed mold to support the walls of the piece during firing.

None. All experience levels welcome.
