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. 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 9” x 9” square swoop serving piece, one 3" x 9" channel plate, and three 3” x 3” condiment dishes.
