In this unique 2.5 hour Glass for Good class, you will practice the kilncasting technique of pâte de verre and make a beautiful work of glass. What’s more, you will stand in solidarity with women everywhere during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, knowing that class profits support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Using a provided plaster silica breast mold created with the help of several volunteer models, you will personalize the project using a palette of glass powders and fill the shell of the mold with a frit paste (we'll first demonstrate pâte de verre methods and design options). Your finished piece will be fired in our kilns and available to pick up a few days later. It will be your very own, handmade awareness-raiser for breast cancer.
