By building up layers of fused glass you can create a stand-up sculptural piece with a 3D effect.
On this course you will build a 6” x 6” stand alone stack-fused piece of your own design. This is an advanced course – previous fusing experience and good cutting skills necessary.
You will need to prepare an image or idea before you arrive for the course, which you can dissect into three segments of depth. Abstract designs can work quite well as can picture scenes which you can divide into a background, middle-ground and foreground. This is a good opportunity to experiment with colour theory and transparent colour-layering, so consider this when developing your design. There will be opportunity to fine-tune your design on the morning of the first day when you know more about how the piece will be constructed.
On day one you will produce three 6mm thick panels (the three layers of depth) which will be fused overnight. These will then be stacked and fused on top of each other in a second firing on day two (half day), with extra layers of clear to create your completed piece.
All materials are included in the cost of this course.
Day 1: 10am - 4pm
