Fused Glass Ornament Class

I conducted a Fused Glass ornament class this month. I hope Chris, Julie, and Jeremy had as much fun as I did. The three of them also took a small dish class with me a few weeks ago and I showed them some sample ornaments and they signed up for this class right then. They had the option of Santa’s, Snowmen, trees, candles, wreaths, stars, etc.

I had all kinds of supplies for them including, vitrigraph, dots, frit, and lots of glass to choose from.  The most difficult part is deciding which ornaments to make. Since this is the second class Chris, Julie, and Jeremy have taken with me they were all very comfortable with cutting, nipping, etc.

I fired the fused glass ornaments and added the bails to the them that the students chose. Jeremy, who is extremely creative asked if he could make a reindeer and my response was absolutely. He also made a snowman and what I call globes. He did a fabulous job!

Julie chose a Christmas tree, candle, and Santa. I love how she made the hat so tall and how she added dichroic glass to the candle. The tree is perfect with vitrigraph and dots.

Chris chose a Christmas tree, snowman, and a wreath. She did a fabulous job on all three. Didn’t she do a fabulous job.

I also had some ribbon (gold, red, etc.), 2022 charms, etc. so they can hang their ornaments.

Sorry the picture is blurry, but these are the Halloween stirrers the students chose as their free gift. Each student receives a free present when they take a class from me.

Another little secret you may not know, is I don’t like to start my kilns when they aren’t full. So I added some of my own ornaments. Here are some of the ornaments I created during both the ornament classes.

This fused glass ornament class is $25 and includes glass, supplies, and instruction for two glass ornaments. As Chris, Julie, and Jeremy did an additional ornament ornament can be added for $10 per ornament.  Here are some of the supplies available for the ornament class. I’ve also cut some snowman bases as well.

If you would like to take a class please let me know (elegantfusedglass@gmail.com).
