Janet has spent a few weeks working in fused glass. Here are some of her results. These will become part of her jewelry line.

Jamie finished her box. If ever a transformation I watched evolve is with Ms Jamie. When she received the certificate for class from her boss as a Christmas present. She wasn't exactly sure what to do with it, being not particularly "arty". Vicki called and we discussed options of interest and landed with this box Jamie was trying to decorate, could that be her project?...of course! So it became the project. Jamie practically skipped into class and her enthusiasm was so much fun to watch. She was so excited with her results.
Here are the ladies beginning the work for their projects in class Saturday January 5, 2008. Vicki is working up a HUGE pot mosaic. Jamie is decorating a lariat box with collage. Brooke is doing mosaic to a metal star. Janet is continuing her education in fusing, and doing quite well.
I had a class with Angelika and Michelle. They both wanted to learn a few backgrounds for their artclass in the middle school. Then they each had a project in mind for collage. I think I explained the class in a previous post but here is the picture of that day.

Here is the latest finished piece of work, a glass box.
The lid is decorated with glass ground to powder.
Then fused into the glass using high kiln temperatures
I highlighted just a small bit with vitreous stain.Fired it in the kiln again.
The piece was intentionally cut zaggy...
Probably not for everyone's taste but, I like different.
