Class Description

This class starts with a 6 inch round, clear, 3mm piece of sheet glass. To that piece we will add several hues and sizes of purple sheet glass pre-fired and formed into flat back round pieces. These pieces will be our 'grapes'. We will stack these 'grape' pieces to form a bunch of grapes on the 6 inch round. Wires will be fused into the top of the glass for hanging. The outside green mosaic border can be as shown , or a darker green color with small red round pieces can be added to form a holly border, for the holidays. Curved vitrograph (several colors to choose from) may be added for color and individual style. Class is limited to 18 students, adults only. After the class, Dody will fire your piece and pick-up time will be on the following Saturday, Nov. 11th at Vermilion Valley Vineyards. Students will not be cutting glass - pieces will be provided. Colors may vary from picture shown as you will be choosing your own colors. All supplies will be provided. About your instructor: Dody Bowman was first introduced to warm glass while she was teaching ceramics at the Kapalua Art School, Kapalua, Maui. She loved what you can do with glass and made her living the next 18 years on Maui selling her beautiful glass work in galleries, art fairs and craft events. To continue to learn and grow, she’s taken glass fusing classes with legendary glass artist, Patty Gray, and Master Class fusing with Tonya Veit, AAE Glass, whose work she admires. Dody has been actively firing glass for 25 years. Dody’s teaching philosophy: I want you to experiment and do your own thing art wise, while using my knowledge and experience to guide you on making a piece that will last forever. I want to help you learn the basics of glass, not only to have fun, but to create an amazing piece of your own. Through experimenting with combining colors and thicknesses of glass, I’ll help you understand what happens in the kiln and why.
