Days for Aberdeen Class Seminar Arrive



I arrive in Aberdeen and set up the classroom.

You see along the wall under the windows I set up assembly style.







After a brief lecture about glass in general and about points specific to fusing...the students make a tile.






After much dilemma over kiln issues...no plug after all, for my huge kiln I brought along..a borrowed kiln that essentially wouldn't heat up well...I pushed the little quick fire I brought along to handle the many fuses of the day and here are the students results.
Bails attached and ready to send to them...this about 1/2 of the class projects..at the time the others were in different stages of completion.

All in all I think the students had a great day!

3 other artist involved were
a couple: Nick and Nichole Fisher represented murals
Rocky Hartberg for Story Illustration
Michelle Bacon on Ceramics

Judging workshop with Nathen Cantwell and Emily Williams Wheeler
key note speaker: Brad Bachmeier


We had a full 2 days...it went smoothly and I think everyone teachers included came away with information to ponder.

I'll bet your students had a great time and learned a lot. You have a wonderfully patient way of explaining things.
