A Klendox box is a Kaiser Lee sandbox! The Kaiser Lee Sand is made from the fibers that are left over when you carve Kaiser Lee Board. First you will prepare some glass art pieces which you will use to construct boxes and other 3D elements. You will also cut and carve some Kaiser Lee Board moulds which can be alternated with the use of Kaiser Lee Sand. Really push the boundaries of form by constructing organic shapes in the sand, which when fired are shiny on both sides!
The finished glass art pieces will be the main focus and you will be shown many more new ideas of kiln forming which will take your glass fusing adventure to new heights.
Petra will be visiting us from Florida, USA, don't miss her!
