The knowledgeable, passionate instructors at Ocean Stained Glass guide students through creating unique jewelry and glass artwork during hands-on classes that run during afternoons and evenings. Participants in the beginning-jewelry-fusing class learn essential glass-fusing techniques, such as designing jewelry, matching compatible materials, and kiln firing. Students create two small pieces of jewelry, adorning earlobes, lapels, or cacti with a set of earrings or pendants. More seasoned glass workers can enroll in the advanced mosaic class, spread over two sessions with homework in between. Translucent apprentices lay out intricate mosaic scenes depicting anything from an idyllic landscape to George Washington's farewell concert atop Mount Rushmore. Mosaics can be incorporated into vases, tabletops, or anything brought from home and in need of artistic upgrade. Ocean Stained Glass supplies its students with the media and implements necessary to shape and prettify glass.
Ocean Stained Glass
For more than a decade, the kilns at Ocean Stained Glass have been firing and finishing glass pieces crafted by both veterans and first-timers. The stained glass play land leads classes that vary in content from fusing techniques and mosaic construction to the pure art of stained glass. It also encourages glassworkers to drop by during open-studio hours, thereby eliminating the need for budding artists to hurl paint buckets and cement blocks at the nearest storefront window. The studio’s resident artists craft custom designs as well, which vary in price based on the materials and complexity of a project.
