Fused Glass Dish Class

I sent out an email giving 3 options for a fused glass class on 14 Nov and two students who have taken several classes wanted to take a private fused glass dish class with me. Normally the minimum is 3 students but Glenda and Brenda wanted to make several dishes so I agreed. They are great students and we had a wonderful time. Here is the studio all ready for them.

Here are some of the supplies I had ready for them along with some samples to give them inspiration. Glenda wanted to make tiny tea dishes and Brenda wanted to make a mixture of normal 4×4 tea dishes and tiny dishes.

Brenda also wanted to screen-print on some of her dishes. So I showed her all my tea screens and she chose a few she wanted. I showed her how to screen print and then let her screen print on a blank piece I had ready for her. I screen-printed the blue one and then she screen-printed the red one.

She chose the screen-prints below and then I did the screen-printed her pieces. The reason is because if I didn’t do the screen-prints for her she would have to come back and then it would have delayed the delivery of her fused glass dishes.

Here are a few pictures of Brenda making her fused glass dishes and stirrers. The bottom row are the dishes and stirrers she created.

Glenda only wanted tiny fused glass dishes. Here are some pictures of her creating her dishes. The bottom row are the dishes and stirrers she created.

Here are the other areas already for their visit. Gallery area (i.e., shopping area), finishing room, screen-printing room, and finished room! I like to have the areas ready so they understand the full process involved in creating my fused glass artwork.

Both Brenda and Glenda received a free gift, Christmas tree stirrers. They really liked them.

I know what you are thinking, what did you make. We’ll I’ll be honest with you. They filled up 2 kiln shelves, but I was able to make 2 tiny tea dishes, a stirrer, and the 2 sample screen print dishes.
