Description

Details

Celebrate Dia de los Muertos and create a Day of the Dead "sugar" skull. 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 sculptural form. We'll provide you with a plaster silica skull mold 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. Student pieces will then be kiln-dried and back-filled prior to a final firing. The result is a relatively hollow form that, despite its delicate sugar-and-icing appearance, is a strong and long-lasting object. Pieces will be fired after the workshop and available for pick-up a few days later.

Prerequisites
Recommended for beginners.
