What's Included

On the First day of class we will look at color as raw material. We will look at what colors do when they layer. How opaque, opal, and Transparent colors all have different qualities. And how to combine colors to create individual pallets. Students will pull canes of different varieties, (clear encased, veil cane and straight color cane), to be used as stock for later processes. demonstrations and hands on instruction will be provided. On the second day we will learn about bundling these canes in different configurations. Cane swapping is encouraged between students to achieve the widest variety of experimentation. students will learn what kind of wire to use, and how the technical process works, as well as get to play with building a complex murine over time, by making a "core" or multiple "cores". Besides learning how to bundle and pull complex canes, students will be shown ways of utilizing the scrap that is inevitable in really beautiful ways. On the final day of class we will be working on the next layer of constructing complex canes, as well as a variety of ways to pick these patterns up on a bubble for exquisite patterning on your glass. students will leave this class with a very comprehensive take on how to make both classic, and experimental patterns in murrine glass. which will also fuel the methods that they use in other areas of the glass studio. No previous cane/murrine experience required, however, this is an ntermediate level class; students need a working knowledge of the basics of manipulating hot glass.
