Flameworked Sea Creatures
Learn to create beautiful focal beads and glass pendants inspired by ocean life. Start with sculptural and stamped shells and master how to use just the right amount of glass for brass and graphite stamps as well explore how to blend stamped images into the design of a bead. Next, learn to make floating jellyfish focal beads using hand pulled cane and encasing techniques and fine silver and silver glass to create a water world background. Lastly, discover how to make sculptural starfish pendants using tools and heat control to stretch and shape the glass. Some flameworking experience required. Supply fee covers specialty material that will be provided; students can bring glass rods or purchase during class based on individual usage.
