Fused Glass, Color and Style, Summer Glass Class

I teach glass classes about once a month at 425 Market Place Antiques in Roswell, Georgia.  They are a blast to teach and it is always fun to bring home their pieces and kiln them.  They always looks very different after several hours at 1800 degrees.  Here are the pieces that my last glass made.

Aren’t these Colors Amazing?

We do three kinds of pendants.  One with Art Glass, One with Dichroic Glass and one with Dichroic Glass topped with a layer of clear glass.

 I love the texture in these pieces.  The one on the bottom right has a glass cane running from top to bottom.

I love all three of these.  They are very tiny but have tons of detail.  She used lots of milliefiori in her designs.

I love all of these.  The pendant on the top right is amazing.  It has three canes on the bottom.

See if you can find the cane in these pieces.  Isn’t the cross just adorable?  I also love the blues in the top right pendant.

These remind me of Stained Glass Windows.  This artist spent a lot of time cutting glass into tiny pieces.  So pretty!

These are all lovely.  The Dichroic on Black really pops.  The canes in the top right piece show glass at it’s best.  You can see depth and an awesome design.

These three have tons of interesting features.  I love the millies all squished together in the first piece.

Didn’t these turn out great?  You can’t tell from the picture but the one on the far left has a lot of depth.  It has the clear glass on top of the pendant.

If you live in the Roswell Area you should come join the fun.  We have a great time and I try to keep the prices really reasonable.  I generally only charge for materials and labor because I want it to be something that families can do together without breaking the bank.
