The Tulsa Stained Glass Co.’s instructors show students how to transmogrify glass into glowing, colorful pendants over the course of one-hour fused-glass classes. Small groups employ a microwave oven and judicious blasts of heat vision to fuse glass into three prismatic pieces. Experienced craftsmen lead melted-sand novices through the process, equipping enthusiastic learners with the materials necessary to craft festive bough-hung pendants or suits of extremely fragile armor.
