Title: Glass: “Fused Glass Sunflower Suncatcher”
Description: This class is an introduction to glass fusing. We will be cutting glass and fitting it to form a sunflower. It will then be kiln fired to fuse the glass pieces together. We will be discussing the ‘how and why’ of creating a kiln firing schedule; a great collaboration of art and science. Please note: This project must be fired in our kiln to be completed. Students may return to Burritt the following week to pick up their suncatchers.
