Glass Classes

Glass fusing and slumping starts with a design and glass cut to create that design.  The piece is fired at 1450 to 1550 degrees to fuse the separate pieces together.  At that point, the project may be complete.  Or it can be fired again to slump it into or over a mold.  The process can be used to create pendants, bowls, plates, sun catchers, vases, and other decorative and functional pieces. Topics include glass types, compatibility, cutting, and firing schedules. Fused glass is also called kiln fired glass and warm glass. Classes are held in Katherine Harper Hall - W. Kerr Scott Hall on the campus of Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C.
