Learn to create tall thin vessels, experimenting with opalescent and transparent glass to create new tones and subtle colour blending. In this class, we’ll cover how to:
- build the flat blanks, taking into consideration mass, heat, time, colour, and opacity
- think about design and colour options
- finish the glass vessel through a wide variety of coldworking methods
- apply my preferred firing schedule for each project option
Now let’s stretch our glass and our skills, making tall vessels that boast stunning colours and enticing designs!

The live, online aspects of the class will happen in two sessions. The first of these is a Viewing Party where you go through the video lesson chapter by chapter with your cohort and instructor Amanda Simmons. Students will be able to ask questions and get live answers throughout this session. The second live, online session will take place several weeks later, after you’ve had time to try the technique. During the follow up, students will review each others’ uploaded images of Tall Vessel projects. You’ll discuss what worked, what didn’t, and why.
We believe this entire package is an exceptional way to learn! It’s an opportunity to get a thorough, step-by-step understanding of how to create tall vessels. So get ready to join two live Q&A sessions with artist Amanda Simmons, to share your work, to inspire and be inspired, and to take your home studio to wonderful new dimensions.
