Frit Frieze with Fiber

Frieze: a sculptured or richly ornamented band (as on a building or piece of furniture) -Merriam-Webster

Most glass enthusiasts love thick, dimensional glass. Glass casting is one wonderful way to achieve this - but not everyone wants to mess with clay, plaster, and all the other things that casting requires.

Our Frit Friezes are made using our original approach to fiber paper forms. This straigh-foward technique to mold making allows you to design both the shape and texture of your imagery. Careful frit placement gives you precise control over color.

Here's an overview of what you'll learn in this exciting class:

Like many classes taught at Helios, the technique and process used in Frit Frieze with Fiber were developed in our studio and are not taught elsewhere.
