Glass provides a resting place for wine, evening wear for Cinderellas, and a more dramatic exit from 44th-floor windows for Bruce Willises. Shatter artistic inhibitions with today's Groupon: for $15, you get the materials and studio time to make a fused glass-mosaic tile at Dakota Stained Glass (a $30 value).
Inside Dakota Stained Glass's 6,500-square-foot facility, artists of all levels gain access to the studio's tools, supplies, and expert staff to create light-catching works of art. Enthusiasts stop by during the studio's open hours to design their 5.5”x5.5” tile and learn the secrets of fusing glass. More than 400 hues and textures of glass beckon for layering in compositions that can utilize precut shapes, crushed-glass frit, and metallic dichroic glass. Decals, rods, and micas compete to join layouts, which staff helps fuse in Dakota Stained Glass’s kiln. After fusing, colorful masterpieces are ready to hang on walls, enliven tables, and wow beyond classical works of macaroni impressionism.
