Private Fused Glass Dish Class

On November 15th I had private fused glass dish class with two students that have taken several classes with me. The first 4 photos are my studio all setup. The next 5 are glass supplies I had available for them to use and of course the last 4 pictures are their workstations including examples.

Brenda wanted to make a mix of tiny tea dishes and normal size dishes. She wanted to screen print them like I made for my cousin. You can see the screens she chose on the bottom row of pictures.

When you screen print it takes extra work so I showed her how to screen print. Basically I screened printed the blue one and she screen printed the red one (1st row). This way I was able to screen print hers above instead of having her come back screen print and then fire them again. This way they are all done at the same time.

Here are the fused glass dishes Brenda made – 3 screen printed dishes, one grey/black/white dish, 2 tiny dishes, and of course some stirrers. The great thing about small classes is you have time to make extra pieces (for an additional fee).

Glenda only made tiny dishes and a couple of stirrers. She did a great job, they are all very unique.

I’m sure you are wondering what did I make. Well they really filled up the kiln, in fact they filled 2 kiln shelves. But I did make 3 tiny dishes, a stirrer, and of course the two tea dishes Brenda and I screen printed.

BTW here are the rest of my glass rooms all ready for Brenda and Glenda. My finishing room (first 4 pictures), screen printing room, and gallery area (basically items I have for sale) and my finished room.

As you know I always give a gift to anyone who takes a class with me. This time I gave Brenda and Glenda a Christmas Stirrer. There were 4 to chose from and these are the ones they didn’t chose – I always forget to take the picture of the ones they actually chose.
