Be a stripper! Glass stripper, that is. In strip-cut construction, the process begins with a sheet of transparent or opalescent glass. The sheets are cut into one-fourth inch strips and assembled on edge, rather than placed flat. These strips are laid out in a pattern fitting your mold, fired in the kiln, and then slumped into a plate. This technique not only lends itself to designs with geometric and linear components, but produces a stunning final piece of fused glass art.
This four-hour session is a Beyond A-Z class and appropriate for intermediate students who have taken A-Z or advanced students.
Instructor: Carol Baker’s introduction to glass art began with stained glass mosaics while she was living in Virginia in 2005. After completing many mosaic projects and looking for a creative challenge, she purchased her first kiln and Lazy Dog Glass Studio was born. Carol has always appreciated a more functional form of art and strives to create beautiful pieces that can be enjoyed in everyday life. In 2012, she relocated to Bainbridge Island where she continues to study fused glass and to advance her knowledge of the intricacies of warm glass art.
