The Taste of Glass Fusing class allows students to experiment with cut piecies of glass, frit, and stringer to make a unique piece of functional art. During the Experience Glass Fusing class, students work with bull’s-eye glass, learn to shape or slump glass into plates or bowls, and obtain additional knowledge about fusing and kiln firing. The stained-glass course, broken up into four three-hour sessions, teaches pupils the basics of crafting a stained-glass panel—how to cut and shape glass, foil and solder, and assemble the panel.
McMow Art Glass
Master craftsmen lead the production team at McMow Art Glass, bringing experienced craftsmanship to each new project that the 9,000-square-foot studio takes on and they teach classes to students of all skill levels. A group of 25 employees with art degrees from all over the country assist the veterans, and together they produce an array of fine glass items that range from classic stained windows to carvings, etchings, and mosaics for residences and commercial buildings. Class topics start with the basic skills of fusion and slumping, and ultimately cover more advanced techniques such as how to repair a broken vase after using it as the ball in a harmless game of rugby.
