Class Description: Learn these two advanced fusing techniques in this one-day class. Combing is an exciting process of manipulating hot glass in a kiln using a stainless steel rake to pull across the surface of the molten glass. This motion causes different colors to blend and streak in unique one-of-a-kind patterns. Students will make a finished project with their combed piece. See how to set up the vitrigraph kiln to produce hot swirls of color and shapes in hot glass. Manipulate the molten glass as it flows out of the bottom of the kiln to create your designs. Use the finished free formed stringers to create a totally unique piece of fused glass art. Topics will include kiln safety and set-up, shelf. All materials for both projects are included.

Safety: Please do not wear sandals if cutting or handling glass. Safety glasses must be worn during class, provided if needed.
