Attendees learn to fuse glass into 3”x4” hanging panels or mosaic wine bottles before the studio’s staff finishes the designs by inundating the creations with kiln fire. Attendees take home mosiac wine bottles the same day. Fused glass panels stay at the studio for firing and are ready to pickup one week later. Call ahead to schedule your outing.
The sight of children playing with mounds of broken glass is not uncommon at Smashing Times studio. That’s because each shard of tile, china, or glass has been tumbled to remove any sharp edges before the young ones transform them into multicolored mosaics. All of the shards, arranged by type and color like pieces of a yet-to-be-discovered puzzle, present themselves for collages of all sorts, including interactive glass-fusing projects.
When not helping artists create their own silver jewelry, glass pendants, or mosaic mirrors, the artists at Smashing Times create custom installations. Ranging from massive exterior murals to miniature mosaic lamps, the projects adorn ordinary surfaces with pinpricks of color, stylized to create geometric patterns or a grove of deceptively inedible citrus trees and grapevines.
