What's Included

Students will explore the glass casting process by creating high relief models out of clay and then making an investment mold. The investment mold will then be packed with fusing glass powders. This ancient method of glass casting is called: pâte de verre (paste of glass). The packed investment mold will then be placed into the kiln to complete the glass casting.

About This Organizer

The PFAC is a vibrant organization that serves as educator and catalyst for awareness and understanding of visual arts – through the art within our five gallery spaces and the educational programs we provide for adults and children.  Not being collections-bound, we are constantly changing our exhibitions – and there is an energy and freedom in what we do that excites the senses and illuminates the world like no other art center in the region. We create art every day in our Studio Art School that offers classes and workshops taught by master artists each year.  We reach children through a comprehensive program of in-school, on-site and outreach opportunities.
