Rainy day vacation – Melt stuff
What to do on vacation in the rain? Melt stuff!
Glass fusing is a “warmglass” process of melting sheet and crushed glass in a kiln to produce light capturing art. I teach an introductory class at Casa Gecko
Glass, a perfect activity for cooling a sun-burn or healing a surfing strain. During an 1 ½-2 hours, you can make a 5” dish or tea candle holder.
The first kiln firing produces a flat plate. That’s followed the next day by a lower temp. firing to “slump” the piece into a mold, thus resulting in a useful shape. I provide the glass, cutting tools and heat. C10,000/person ($20.00).
Be sure to schedule your class with at least
48 hours before your departure, to allow for kiln firing time.
