Glass Fusing I - Addy De Pietro
This Class is useful to the beginner and the intermediate student. We will cover the simple rules of glass coefficients as well as the use of different types of glass such as frits, stringers, noodles and confetti. We will thoroughly discuss the different kilns and kiln temperatures used for all projects. We will begin with basic fusing, Addy Opals, windows, decals, millefiori earrings and etching, ending up with embossing and hot manipulation (raking). You will use copper and fine silver to make bails and nichrome wire. You will make channels in the jewelry nuggets for chains or leather. Each step will be covered using premade kits designed to build confidence in firing and producing jewelry quality pieces through a step-by-step process. Lab fee includes shelf paper, frits, confetti noodles, stringers, bail making and etching materials, copper foils, decal pieces, stamped millefiori for earrings and a base for a raked piece, as well as a kit with materials to make three Addy opals, three windows and a bag of glass pieces to make the first shelf of nuggets. Addy will have a huge variety of dichroic glass as well, for you to purchase for additional projects or to bring home. You can reach her at mysticalmelts@aol.com.
