Kiln experience is required to participate. Not certified? Sign-up for a Try-iT! Class. Lots of experience - just not at Potekglass? Call Malcom and he'll see if this is the right fit for you.


"I've had a carved soap stone I had been hoping to use as a mold for over a year, and the free glass gave me an opportunity to try it. I got to practice and play with new ideas!" - Beth H.
