This class is an intermediate class. The prerequisite for this class is A-Z of Fused Glass.

Vitrigraph comes from the Latin “vitri” (glass) and the Greek “graph” (writing). A vitrigraph kiln is used for the process of heating glass in a small pot and allowing the molten glass to flow out of the bottom of a pot through the bottom of the kiln.

This specialized tool can, with experience & practice, aid glass enthusiasts in their creative quest. Using the Vitirgraph to create  curvey stringer, curving glass rods, and linear elements, will expand creative ideas with which to draw from.

Session 1 introduces students how to control the fluidity of glass by hand pulling, stretching and twisting glass stringer at 1600 degrees. 
Session 2 brings students the opportunity to use the pulled glass, to create a 12" x 12" fused glass line drawing.  This is a amazing & fun technique you won't want to miss! 

Becoming comfortable with this technique will lead to more advanced classes where we will make murini & mille fiori rods.

There will be a material fee of $35 added at registration.

Remember to wear cotton clothing, no polyesters, long pants, socks & close-toed shoes in the Glass Studio, at all times! This will be strictly enforced.
