Fused Glass Class

In April I gave a fused glass class to four lovely ladies and this month I gave another one to three ladies. Thank you Merle for setting this class up for me. In my first class we made small dishes.

Here is the class set up. I gave each participant is a tray to have all of their projects pieces together. I also had a myriad of supplies out including opal glass, transparent glass, dots, vitrigraph and I had molds out for them to chose from. Additionally I had some safety supplies out.

In this class each of the ladies wanted to make something different. Susan wanted to make small dishes. I showed her various samples. She made 2 dishes and they turned out great, I loved the glass she chose aventurine, dichroic dots, and vitrigraph.

Carol wanted to make a casted fused glass dragonfly. It turned out beautifully, I can’t wait to see how she displays it.

Jana made two magnets and a candle cover. I love what a fabulous job she did on these two pieces.

There was another participant, Susan I want to write a separate post about her but here’s a hint. She’s a weaver and she is using my glass to make this beautiful ornament. Yes – she took some of my glass (recycled bottle glass ornament) and she’s going to incorporate it in her artwork. I can’t wait to see what she does with my glass art.

I can’t wait to give another class. I enjoy sharing my love of Glass! Speaking of sharing glass, I gave each student a free fused glass pendant.

Keeping my kilns warm,



  1. Thanks Karen for another wonderful class.My daughter and friends LOVED the class and so enjoyed you and all the information you impart about glass (an incredibly fascinating art.) My friend from Connecticut was so very thrilled with her 3 pieces. I think you’ll be seeing her again next year when she comes out.

    I’m sure I’ll be seeing you again in the not too distant future!

    • Merle. I’m so happy you enjoyed the class. I had a blast and look forward to our next class together! Karen
