"Sky Windows" - Fused Mosaic Panels
Made with glass that YOU design!
In this class, you will complete a 12 inch tall "Sky Window" similar to those on display in our online gallery.
First, you will create small sheets of your own designer glass using frit, powder, confetti and more. You'll learn several techniques not covered in any other Helios class. We will also provide some simple tips for choosing colors that ensure the final piece "works."
Next, you will cut your glass into tiles and assemble your 12" x 4" panel. We'll provide several design guidelines to help you create a piece that is balanced, cohesive and interesting.
In the final step, you will "grout" your piece and prepare it for the last firing. We'll even provide you with a stand for displaying your new masterpiece!
As with all Helios classes, students are always able to complete work during open studio time (at no charge).
