In this unique class, you will explore the meditative technique of powdered glass frit. Using frit powders of various colors and choosing previously dried foliage you will create striking floral images in this class.

In the three-hour session you will come to understand the necessary safety practices and clean up using glass powders. You will cut your basic shapes out of glass. Then with step-by-step instruction you will practice the process of layering frit to colorize the dried foliage you have chosen to decorate your dishware. Frit combined with foliage creates delicate organic images that will compliment your food presentation or anything you might imagine. 

In this class you will produce one 8” x 8” square swoop serving piece and up to five 3” x 3” condiment dishes.

There is a $45 materials fee included in the class tuition.

Note:  Instructions will be sent to each student on how to dry & store your foliage before class.

Instructor:  Diane Bonciolini

The "olini" of Mesolini Glass Studio, Diane's love of 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. She describes glass, her medium of choice, as having 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. 

Remember to wear close-toed shoes & long pants in the Glass Studio at all times! This is a strictly enforced safety policy. Thank you.
