Learn the beautiful kiln casting technique of pâte de verre in this 2-day workshop! Translated literally to "paste of glass", pâte de verre produces exquisitely delicate pieces using fine frit. On day 1 students in this class will be walked through the steps of mold making, creating their own plaster mold in the form of a vessel. Students will pack their mold with an array of colored glass to be cast in our kilns. Day 2 students will divest their mold and reveal a glass vessel.
Students are encouraged to bring their favorite clay tools and old spoons (to be used in class). Tools will be provided, however additional tools are appreciated.
