Day 2 - Powders

Day two began with a review of all five techniques which went into the kiln the night before. It wasn't long before everyone was cutting them up into part sheets to make their own designer tiles.

By the afternoon the kiln was full again with pieces to be full fused and a whole new set of techniques including sgraffito, powder wafers and fossil vitra. We made full use of every square inch of that kiln. It was a good weekend workshop. I can not wait to see everyone's final pieces.

Day 1 - Powders

Day one of a two day workshop focused on glass powders. My students each got 5 different techniques into the kiln. Can't wait to see how they all turn out.
