Pattern Bar technique is yet another possibility that brings unique design elements to your glass practice. It is best described as a stacked multicolored glass bar that when sliced, arranged & fired can create stunning patterns. Sometimes referred to as a 'segment slab' it is composed of sheet glass strips that are tack-fused together, cut into parts, and fired within a containment system until the glass flows and forms an internal pattern.

Session 1 of this project-based lesson you will learn to create pattern bars that will then be kiln fired.
Session 2, you will use the studio's wet saw to cut your fired bars into cross-sectional pieces and arrange them within a containment system. However you arrange them, your outcome will be a fascinating.
Session 3 you will cold work your finished piece readying it for fire polishing.  The result will be a finished disc for serving or who knows! Where you take it after that is up to you!

A Materials Fee of $50 will be added to the class cost when you register.

Be sure to wear close-toed shoes & long pants in the studio.
