Texture Plates

Create and use clay texture plates to add dimension and detail to your work in this unique Helios class.

Texture plate project examples

Reusable clay texture plates allow you to emboss glass with greater detail than kiln carving and without having to recut fiber for every firing. This class covers making your own custom texture plates and different methods for using them to create relief designs in glass.
