Nancy Weisser has focused on glass as a medium since 1980. She owns and operates Weisser Glass Studio in Kensington MD. Nancy is known not only as a skilled and distinguished artist but also as an outstanding educator in the field of glass. She has taught countless classes in her studio as well as hosting nationally known instructors. Through her studio and education program she has made a substantial contribution to the dynamic growth of the Washington DC glass community and beyond.


     In Volume 2 Nancy takes you through all the steps to create a fantasy underwater garden teaming with sea life. In this video lesson students will learn methods of layering imagery through multiple firings and building depth while learning processes for creating elements that will be used to create the imagery. Students will learn new techniques not covered in part one as well as learn new variations of some methods contained in part one. Techniques taught include frit making (how and why), crafting pattern sheets with frit and stringer, creating patterned vitrograph stringer, cane and manipulated elements, enameled bits, making torchworked pieces for adding detail to your design, and strategies for eliminating coldworking and devitrification.  Beyond building a sea garden project the lessons taught will open your eyes to methods and techniques that can be applied to a multitude of kiln projects.  As an added bonus throughout the lessons you will learn the language of artistry, including topics like color selection, contrast and composition without being overwhelmed by these basic concepts. Nancy will encourage you to trust your instincts, use your curiosity and work in an improvisational way leading you to become a more creative maker.
