** Glass Cutting  and Basic Fusing Experience Is Required for This Class! **

Join Joyce, Harmony’s fusing guru and an award-winning glass artist, to learn how to craft your own unique art glass drop vessel.  When you look at these spectacular vessels, you can't help but touch them.  Because of this unique technique, they appear mouth-blown rather than kiln-formed.  They are the result of managed heat, gravity and viscosity.  We see them as a fascinating combination of art and science!  In this class, you'll learn how to design, assemble, drop and cold work to achieve gallery-level glass art.  In addition to three class days, your tuition includes an additional no-charge coldworking session for your second drop vessel and a take-home drop-out mold.

This class has a lot of content.  The schedule looks like this: 

Day One:  We’ll discuss the features of a drop vessel blank and you’ll design and create your first blank for a 5" tall vessel.  You’ll also prepare your drop-out mold.

Day Two:  The fused blank goes in the kiln.  While we’re waiting for it to heat, you’ll create another blank.  Once the blanks in the kiln get hot enough, we’ll monitor their progress until you’re satisfied with their height and touch down.

Day Three:  We’ll put your second blank into the kiln to drop and we’ll coldwork the first vessel until it is worthy of presentation in an art gallery.  Coldworking the second vessel will be on your own at your convenience.

We require that you purchase any class tools and supplies here at Harmony.  By doing so, you help ensure that your local stained glass store will be here as a place for fun and learning for many years to come.
