Using crushed glass frits and powders has opened up a whole new world of artistic imagery.  Anything is possible when working with small particles of glass from tight photo-realism to loose impressionism.   Working on a 6″ x 9″ piece, you will learn how to control color density, shading, soft and hard edge lines and some unique specialty looks.
This class will touch on multiple firings to create a rich, vibrant panel piece.  There will be enough studio time to create technique samples and develop your own personal color palette for your piece.  Just imagine how you can expand these techniques to creation unbelievable wall pieces, tiles and continuous murals.   Supplies included.
