Combing Glass in the Kiln
Saturday, December 15 to Sunday, December 16, 2018
Instructor: Brad Walker
What better way to get out of the winter cold than spending the weekend exploring kiln-forming processes that take place at 1650F and higher. Our focus will be on combing, or manipulating molten glass in the kiln, with the goal of creating and completing a large combed platter like the one at left. We'll also explore high temperature melts such as pot and wire melts and learn about high fire techniques, too.
Here's a perfect opportunity to learn about high temperature firing in a safe, secure environment. In addition to getting the chance to reach inside the kiln and manipulate molten glass, we'll also learn about finishing our pieces and taking them from flat blank to final work of art.
Familiarity with glass cutting and with basic fusing and slumping techniques is recommended, but not essential. All materials will be provided.
