This is a very special opportunity.  AAE Glass welcomes Switzerland glass artist and instructor Erna Piechna-Sowersby.  Erna will be traveling a long way to AAE in SW Florida to bring you to techniques that are not seen in the U.S.  Do not delay in signing up.  Students now have the option of placing a 50% deposit on the website or pay in full when checking out.
Fabrics, baskets and textiles as well as aerial photography of landscapes serve as Inspiration for both the creative and technical approach in this class.  
We will be working with frit, glass powders, reactive glasses as well as metallic materials. From these we will create components – reminiscent of wafers - with unusual colour effects. These will be brought together by multiple firings.
The firing in stages will sometimes confront us with unpredictable results. We will analyze these ‘surprises’ and embrace them for our personal exploration. 
The result is a picture or wall peice with a heavily textured surface and backside plus all sorts of weathering effects – a narrative of the existence of all sorts of materials.
 Projects made: 2 wall pieces ‚Patchwork and Rug  plus reference samples
