Mirrors are reflections of ourselves. Let your mirror reflect your artistic talent with fused glass--ad
d a little color, add a little light, and add a little fun. In this three-hour workshop, participants will use glass to create a decorative backdrop for a mirror. Then, the glass will be fused in a kiln and ready for the mirror to be added. It's a perfect gift or decoration for your own wall.
Don't forget to wear closed toed shoes to the Glass Studio.
Diane Bonciolini is the "olini" of Mesolini Glass Studio, and glass is her passion. As a full-time glass artist who has lived and worked on Bainbridge Island since 1977, she grows and changes with every project. Glass, her medium of choice, has a life of its own. This multifaceted medium shows itself in each of her creations: stained glass, slumped and fused glass, lamp work, or glass combined with concrete. Whether it is a stained glass window, a one of a kind dishware piece, or a fused glass commission, Diane’s focus is on her originality and integrity in design, her client’s desires, the logistics of function and problem solving, color, and glass choice. In their partnership Diane and Gregg brainstorm ideas by working together as fabricators, instructors, and facilitators. Diane is a hands-on artist/crafts person; when teaching, she brings calm, experience and humor to this fickle medium not easily understood. Her desire as an instructor is for her students to relax and have fun, find excitement in the material, and learn to work safely using the proper tools and techniques. Much of the work that she and Gregg do goes beyond the business of their careers and involves schools, communities, and sharing what they know with others.
