Rattle Workshop

This workshop is about FUN!!!

You will work with fused glass, metal and wood in this mixed-material class.

Explore your relationship with symbolic imagery and create a ceremonial art object, your personal rattle. In this class we will work with Bullseye sheet glass, frits, silver foil, and a plastic decorating bag to apply “liquid glass” lines, using various techniques that La Londe has developed. We will cut the rattle form out of aluminum 16″ – 20″ tall, attach a wooden handle, attach two glass hemispheres to create the rattle, and make a display stand.

Float and Bullseye
Explore float glass (window glass) and make a sand mold to fuse/slump a leaf plate using silver foil and vitreous enamels. Create an “undercut” mold and make a sagged vessel. Learn how to distinguish the “tin side” from the “air side” of float glass, how to stop devitrification and about kiln firing float glass.                                

Explore Bullseye glass by creating a Mandala with “tested compatible” sheet glass, crushed glass frit mixtures, La Londe’s liquid glass line method, and a multiple firing. We will also make a “multi-layer” cave painting tile using frit on the kiln shelf, a 3mm sheet of clear glass,     the “liquid glass line” and sifted frit and stencils. Then we will fabricate an aluminum mounting system for these two tiles.
