Advanced Powder: Wafers, Freeze & Fuse, and Fossil Vitra
Once you work with glass powders you may never go back.
Our advanced powder class will focus on three exceptional techniques: powder wafers (simple and multi-stencil), freeze and fuse, and plant imagery with fossil vitra.
The advanced powder wafer techniques will allow you to create detailed imagery on thin glass "wafers" that you can use for components in other projects.
With freeze and fuse techniques, you can create three dimensional objects with powder, water, and a freezer (yes, a freezer). This technique allows you to create small, cast objects that fire in the kiln without any mold at all!
Vossil vitra (also called "lost plant imagery") is an original technique that Paul developed for creating beautiful, fossil-like plant images on glass using real plants and glass powders.
Paul's work with powders has been exhibited at Bullseye Gallery and is featured in Contemporary Glass Enameling: Fusing with Powders, Paints, and Frit by Kay Bain Weiner.
