Learn the basics of working with Milestone decals, tips for applying them to sheet glass, and how to fire them for the best results.
In this project-based lesson, we will demonstrate how to make a photograph into a laser-printed decal to be fired onto glass, to make a fused and slumped plate.
In this lesson, we'll show you how the process of powder-colored sheet glass works and create several different sheets of colored glass.
Here, we cover strategies for successfully reheating pre-fired work, the cumulative effect of heatwork on glass, how to anneal works that have been fired multiple times, as well as some special considerations.
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.
In this lesson, we'll make a plate that illustrates one way to harness the unique qualities of rolled edges. We'll also cover some possible variations.
In this lesson we'll demonstrate how to design and fabricate your own lighting sconce.
In this lesson, you'll learn about design, setup, and firing considerations for kilncarving billets, as well as some variations.
Learn about the characteristics of Cascade sheet glass, methods for cutting narrow strips, and how to make a plate with a chevron design.
Here, we'll discuss how flameworking can be combined with kilnforming to achieve effects that range from representational to abstract.
This lesson suggests some of the criteria to consider as you investigate your choices of kiln-glass.
In this lesson you will learn about the tools and techniques involved and will get a broad overview of the ways glass powder can be used in art and design.
