Prep for Intro-Glass Fusing


I am late late late...posting the process for this class.

This class was given through the Dacotah Prairie Museum in Aberdeen, South Dakota.
April 22-24

For the past 15 years they invite High School students interested
in art to this seminar to learn more on the subject through accomplished artists shown through the museum.


To prepare I made samples of their project.


Cut blanks they worked on decorating with glass powders and frits.






Shows decorated tile before firing in the kiln.








Tiles coming out of the kiln. You will see in another post the students work from that workshop.

The top picture of the necklace was demonstrated to show them where they can take their finished tile.
Glass drilled with holes and jump rings made to fit...created a wearable art piece.
