Learn the Fuse It Like It's Hot technique at the Glass Craft and Bead Expo in Las Vegas, April 4-8.
Learn to think like a glass blower and make finished pieces that are similar to blown glass. Imagine producing a vessel like the one below using about 3 ounces of color!
There are 3 different classes. In all classes, we will discuss the technique, drop vessels, schedules, uses for fiberboard and make color combinations using rod, stringer and Tekta for home use. The color combinations will yield vessels like the ones in the photos below or something you may choose to create.
On Wednesday 4/4, there is a four hour class in the morning from 8am-12pm and another from 1pm-5pm. In this class I will demonstrate the technique and you will make 2 combinations to take home. Petra Kaiser will do a short presentation on the uses and how to cut Kaiser Lee Board.
In the seven hour class on 4/5, students will make a blank for a vase like the one on the left which is to be finished at their home. The project color for the blank and vessel will vary. Petra Kaiser will do a short presentation on the uses and how to cut Kaiser Lee Board.
In the 2 day class starting on Friday, 4/6, you will finish a drop vessel similar to the vessel in the left photo below. You will prepare the glass for the drop and on day 2 you will remove the rim and finish the top to a high shine. Petra Kaiser will do a short presentation on the uses and how to cut Kaiser Lee Board.
