We all love glass fusing because it offers spontaneous, creative freedom for the designer in all of us. Precision drawings and elaborate planning is not required. However, there are a few simple design, fabrication and shaping secrets that will allow your inner designer to discover a world of fresh possibilities.
Strip-Frieze Designing: You won't believe the spectacular design possibilities that result from a handful of narrow glass strips, noodles, stringers, twists and other linear components. Discover some tips and tricks for successful glass strip cutting.
Fritage Lace Embellishments: This simple technique produces jaw-dropping organic patterns. Randy will reveal the entire process, but you don't have to tell your friends how easy the process is when you show them the impressive results!
Petrofrit Components: This nifty technique will enable you to make a variety of wafer-thin, stand alone life-form components such as flowers, sea life, animals, celestial bodies, cameo profiles or anything you desire. Learn how to use these components as building blocks for some engaging creations.
Draped Bowl with a Stemmed-foot: Randy will reveal his innovative, mold forming technique that mimics what he learned in the glass blowing studio. This technique moves glass fusing to the center pedestal in the art gallery.
Drop-Thru Vase Forming: Randy will demonstrate his Drop-Thru Mold process that aligns the glass-drop to the center of a wine glass style foot. You've never seen anything like this come out of a fusing kiln.
Spherical Bowls and Flat Platters with Cookie-style Feet: Randy will show you how to use the two-sided BinaSphere Mold that he developed which enables fusers to create a 12" Spherical Bowl or a 12" Flat Serving Platter with a cast glass foot fused to the bottom. Prepare to have your socks (and maybe your shoes) knocked off!
Randy has been in the art glass community for more than 35 years and he has done it all; from stained glass to blown glass and his teaching style holds nothing back. You will be amazed with his depth of knowledge, contagious enthusiasm and sense of humor. This class is full of professional tips, tricks, shortcuts, design philosophy and so much more. Come prepared to ask any question you have about fusing then get ready for an insightful and all-inclusive answer. Don't let this opportunity pass you by!
