http://www.arrowmont.org/enriching-lives-through-art in Gatlinburg, Tennessee on Thursday evening. I was taking a glass class with Barbara Cashman from Greensboro, North Carolina.
http://www.custommade.com/by/GlasTile/ I was really intrigued with the idea of using tempered glass and fusing it with other glass. The bowl above is plate glass cracked with a hammer. Really hit the glass hard for it to break. Frit or fine glass like glitter which is compatible to the plate glass is added. First firing is at full fuse and second you slump onto a plate.
Freeze and fuse is how these starfish were created. Mix up frit with water and freeze it inside a mold. After an hour in the freezer, take it out and let it stand a bit and then into the kiln it goes.
There are so many possibilities in creating with glass!
