Hey all, I'm teaching a one day class - Ancient Vessels - in San Jose CA at the Bay Area Glass Institute (BAGI). There are still spots in the class!
Here's the link:
Here's the class description:
In this class we will explore ways to make small glass vessels that look like they’ve been dug up from an archeological dig. Using fine glass frit, reduction powders, and enamels, we will add texture and color to a base of the piece. Vessels are a classic ancient shape, and in this class we will focus on mastery of the vessel form with time to play with the decorative possibilities that powders can create. We will also explore using silver foil to create effects that give glass an ancient look. Students may make these pieces either as beads or off of the end of a mandrel so that the vessel hole does not go through the entire piece.
