Description

Colorful Falling Leaves
Techniques and Tricks to striking boro color, hand press molds, loops/bails, and reading the heat in a body of glass


3-hour class
Cost: $115
Member Price: $103.50

As the atmosphere changes and the leaves transform in color, so too does the striking palate of this American hardglass Borosilicate. Create a pile of one-of-a-kind leaf pendants using striking and interesting colors! Focus will be on the flame's atmosphere and gas mix to achieve beautiful colors in boro. We will go over sculpting skills as we hand press with patterned molds to create lines and stunning pressed glass leaves. Then we will create movement in the glass by reading the heat in a body of glass to achieve a flowing "falling leaf" effect. Lastly, we will practice loops/bails to finish the piece as a pendant! Projects for this class will be kiln annealed and available to be picked up the following week.

Note: Participants are required to have previous experience with glass torch work or participated in a Try-iT! session on the torch. No glass experience? Just Try-iT! We recommend the Basics from Boron class before this workshop although any Try-iT will do!
