In this exciting workshop Nancy will reveal her process of creating fantastical gardens and imaginary underwater scenes in fused glass. This will be a multi-step and multi-element process that will include many techniques and use of various vitreous materials. Glass forming techniques taught will include: vitrograph stringer and cane forming, working over a torch, making frit from the kiln, crafting part sheets, and other methods for generating a variety of visual effects with frits, powders and dry enamels. Students will be challenged to create from their imagination and to trust their own instincts and rely on information that already exists in the mind. Emphasis will be placed on creating spontaneously and improvising while exploring design, color and layering steps. This class is ideal for students that are open to the creative process, interested in learning new forming methods and constructing a progressive piece of art that represents their individual style. Finishing and presentation options will be covered as well. Each student will create two finished artworks, a flora dream garden and an underwater dream garden.
