About This Activity

Description

This activity is closed to further registration.

THIS CLASS REQUIRES A $15 MATERIAL FEE PAID IN CASH TO THE INSTRUCTOR BEFORE THE START OF CLASS.

Learn the art of fusing layers of glass together to create ornaments and adornments. Topics covered will include working with fusible glass and basic color layering techniques, with an overview of other techniques like using glass powder, decals and other add-ins. Lisa will lecture on working with kiln temperatures, and a field trip to her studio to observe firing may be arranged. Participants will be able to assemble one or more pieces in each session depending on complexity, and can pick up their fired pieces a few days after the class. Three other glass classes are offered by Lisa in November/December - each are stand alone but can also be taken in sequence to learn a variety of fusible glass techniques.

Los Angeles-based Lisa Ann Sparks, of Sparks Glass Art, makes eco-friendly, recycled glass jewelry, accessories and housewares sourced from naturally occurring elements like silica, sand and limestone, with additions of 'high' and 'low' materials like recycled sterling silver and paper. Using techniques like color layering and adding in metal, carbon decals and colored glass powders, she expresses her love for organic imagery through this luscious but exacting medium. sparksglassart.com
