In this lesson, you'll learn the effects of firing to different tack fuse temperatures. We'll also cover firing schedule considerations to avoid thermal shock and promote effective annealing.
New to glass fusing? Ready to begin your glass fusing education? Good news, you've come to the right place.
In this lesson, you'll learn about the basic features of drop-out molds and the kinds of pieces you can create with them. You’ll also learn how viscosity and other variables affect glass during the slump.
In this lesson, we'll use a similar method to "Working Deep", making a thick slab of glass for a small tabletop with a combination of sheet glass and billets for rapid assembly.
Opaline sheet glass has great potential to expand the color palette in kilnforming because it has the ability to create new colors with distinct properties. Learn more about using Opaline in this lesson.
In this lesson you will learn how to create individual design layers, lay up a block to control bubbles and minimize coldworking, and considerations for damming, firing, and finishing the work.
In this lesson you will learn how glass flow can be controlled to spectacular effect.
This introductory lesson will focus on working with three specific materials: copper leaf, silver foil, and gold foil.
In this lesson you will learn tips for cutting and composing with glass strips, as well as some special effects you can achieve with on-edge construction.
In this lesson you will learn how to transform a Paragon Caldera kiln into a Vitrigraph kiln and how to safely hand-pull stringers to use when designing, drawing, or painting with glass.
With certain glasses, chemistries will interact to create effects and different colors than what one might anticipate. Learn about the types of possible reactions, which can prove quite useful in art and design.
In this lesson you will learn how to achieve a variety of surface textures and finishes with frit by varying time and temperature in the kiln.
