Cane & Murrine Made for Fusers


September 7 - 12, 2020
Kiln Working and Glassblowing
All Levels
One-Week Session

Make cane and murrine out of fusible sheet glass, compatible with all your colors! Fusers and kiln formers can experience the satisfying process of designing beautiful cane or murrine to use in their glass work. Class time will be divided between the fusing studio and the hot shop. Students will start our set-ups in the fusing studio then move to the hot shop to pull their creations into cane. Students will be amazed at how their work will improve by adding these design elements that are not usually available to kiln formers. Discussion will cover ways to continue these techniques in a home studio, the equipment needed, and strategies for recycling scrap glass. No glassworking experience is necessary; however, hot shop experience is useful.
