A three day course getting creative with Brad Walker's Bubble Up techniques.

The Bubble Up is a unique technique in which glass is arranged and fired to create clear areas in a particular pattern. The resulting pieces have a series of round clear areas, scattered throughout the piece. The clear areas can be spaced randomly or spaced evenly in lines. The size of the holes can also be manipulated, as can the colors surrounding each clear space. You will make a series of pieces using System 96 glass.

In this workshop we’ll not only cover the basic process for creating bubble ups, we’ll also explore more advanced techniques, such as filling the clear spaces and creating more elaborate bubble patterns.

Experience with glass fusing and with cutting glass is essential.

Brad Walker is founder and owner of, the internet’s longest running website devoted strictly to kiln-forming.  He is also the author of two books:  Contemporary Warm Glass and Contemporary Fused Glass.
