Kiln Needed: You must have a vitrigraph kiln to complete this technique
Equipment/Machinery Needed: None
Taking a thoughtful approach to using the Vitrigraph kiln we can create cane and murrine that rival those created in a hot shop. Capitalizing on the ways glass can be arranged in and flows from a crucible, students in this innovative workshop will learn to create reproducible decorative canes and intricate murrine using the Vitrigraph Kiln. These elements can then, immediately, be used in other kiln-glass projects. This video focuses on creating a murrine wall panel that can be hung as decorative glass art, however, once this technique can applied to any fused glass project that you create. Bowls, plates, part sheets, drop out vases, jewelry etc. Nathan does not hold back and gives so much information, you will surely benefit from this video by using his teachings in all aspects of your glass work. Handouts, diagrams and firing schedules are also available for you to download. Nathan also includes 3 additional bonus recipes with diagrams in your handouts to get you started! In addition, you will gain admittance in a private Facebook student group hosted by AAE Glass and Nathan Sandberg where you will continue to learn and share ideas with other students who haven taken this online video class.

Excellent! review by Marie on 9/18/2019
This video is so worthwhile & will help you understand a very complex process easily. The video is professional & has excellent information, a great value for the $$ spent.
Value for money and the notes are useful review by Karen Smart on 9/8/2019
I have not got a kiln for this kind of work , and there are no local courses, so this course was an inexpensive way to see if I might want to take it further. Handouts are useful.
Greeat class review by Cindy on 9/7/2019
I took this class from Nathan about 5 years ago at Bullseye Glass in Portland. I still learned new techniques in this class. Though I have my notes from the first class, having it "live" from Nathan in my library is very helpful. Thank you!
Worth every penny! review by Georgette Phillips on 1/13/2019
Thank you Nathan Sandberg for partnering with AAE to share your techniques. I have a full time job and it is hard to get away to attend classes. By purchasing this video I was able to learn a new technique despite my busy schedule. I am able to replay the video as needed and can play the video at the same time as I attempt the project. Nathan is a wonderful instructor and is so easy to follow. Thanks to Nathan I was also able to cut a perfect circle! I look forward to purchasing his other videos.
Awesome review by Deborah Josling on 1/9/2019
Nathan’s instructions and notes were easy to follow to achieve perfect results everytime. And to be able to re-watch anytime a refresher is needed is such a bonus and is actually better value than travelling to attend a class. Well done both AAE Glass and Nathan Sandberg. Cant wait for the next one.
Excellent teacher in Excellent lesson! review by SARAH on 1/8/2019
This video is an excellent production! Nathan is very exacting in his technique. I love this way to get the education across to us glass artists who might not be able to travel to AAE to take a class...AND for those of us who have but have this video to remind us of certain details of the technique. It's something that's always on my computer to refer to. Thank you AAE Glass for this awesome opportunity at an affordable price!
Very comprehensive review by Vicky on 10/22/2018
Sadly Nathan canceled the courses he was going to teach in New Zealand this month, so the second best option for hands-on tuition with Nathan has been this great video which is very comprehensive and I would recommend it to anyone who can't get to his classes.
Don't miss out! review by Denise on 10/8/2018
This video was everything I hoped for. Being Canadian it is not easy to find professional courses being offered in my area. This video surpassed my expectations! It was informative and easy to follow along. I had been pulling murrini's but Nathan made it so much better. I learned many new things and am excited to add them in my projects.
Bucket List! review by Lisa S. on 10/6/2018
I have been wanting to take Nathan's class for a long time....quality video at a reasonable price....money saved from travel and paying for a live class was allocated to buying the kiln used in this video & purchased at a competitive price on AAE's website. WIN-WIN
An absolute must if you want to pull vitrigraph cane! review by Lindsay Blankenship on 10/5/2018
This video made pulling my FIRST vitrigraph cane a complete success! I do not have easy access to "in person" classes on making murrine with a vitrigraph kiln, but I really wanted to make my own cane and murrine. Thanks to this video, I can! The instructions are clear and easy to follow. I set up my kiln, following the video, and pulled my very first cane - no problems! Thank you!
Loved it, so much info review by Rosie Mitchell on 10/4/2018
My partner brought me a Paragon Caldera for my birthday, was hesitant to use it but after watching the video with Nathan it gave me the confidence to start, amazing from start to finish, thank you.
Good Investment review by Marlene R Wegner on 9/29/2018
Being able to watch OVER AND OVER I find these videos to be a great reinforcement of Nathen's detailed instructions on creating murrini. Classes are always a great personal experience, but I receive more retention of the subject matter when reviewing the videos than when trying to rely on personal memory.
Great lesson. review by Carol Curry on 9/27/2018
I really understood Nathan’s murrine technique by watching this video. He is a through teacher. The background music is a lot of fun.
Love love love this video review by Talljules on 9/26/2018
This is a fantastic video! I had been pulling murrini before I saw this video, but there was so much more left to learn. Nathan is detailed and explains what happens and why it happens. While watching the video, I was writing down questions and he answered all of them before the end of the video. Felt like a one on one lesson.
Great video and teacher review by Lindsay Butler on 9/26/2018
If you want to make murrine then this video takes you step by step through his process - avoiding trial and error, giving you the confidence to make your own.
Very good basis for developing your own vitrigraph murrine. review by Elisabeth Miller on 9/26/2018
I really liked the notes that went with the video. It made it very easy to follow and to adapt. Video is well done and clear. I have watched this many times.
Fantastic review by JUDY. Phillips on 9/26/2018
Very worth the money. Learned a lot about setting up the pot for different designs
Must buy! review by Amanda Buzek on 9/23/2018
This is a must buy. I have been dying since I got it because I do not have my vitrigraph kiln set up yet. The things you will be able to do with this video are endless and as soon as I have my set up I will be purchasing the next video!
Mystery revealed! Great informative class review by Marsha on 9/23/2018
This class is well executed and made simple enough to understand and accomplish!
EXCELLENT!!! review by Tyrone Powell on 9/20/2018
This is a great video!!! Nathan really explains in detail on how to create your own murrini!!! A must for your collection!!!
Great Class! review by debby on 9/19/2018
He is a very detailed instructor. He clearly takes you through each step in the processes and included lots of helpful information along the way.
Very informative and straight forward review by carol zodrow on 9/19/2018
Excellent and clear presentation, Nathan is a very good instructor. It would have been nice to have some more advanced techniques presented, rather than having to purchase another video.
Great Teacher review by SANDY TALEN on 9/19/2018
Nathan explains a very difficult process, but makes it easy.
What a Lesson! review by Lynn Mcmanus on 9/19/2018
Nathan did a wonderful job teaching the fundamentals of making vitrograph murrine. I understand so much more after watching this lesson. His teaching style makes it easy to follow and he also responds to questions in the Facebook group after you’ve joined it! Amazing! Thanks for everything.
Awesome video! review by KRISTIN on 3/25/2018
This class was worth every penny! Nathan's presentation is very detailed and thoughtful. How amazing to have a class like this available online. I loved this class and will no doubt watch it over and over again.
He doesn't miss a step! Excellent! review by Jennifer on 12/10/2017
I don't have classes in my area and have not been able to afford to fly to one of Nathan's classes. I've admired this technique for years. I was just thrilled to find this video. The Facebook support page is helpful too. Thank you!
Excellent presentation!! review by Marjorie on 6/12/2017
Nathan is a an exceptionally fine teacher! This course was well organized and clearly presented down to the finest level of detail. He covered everything step by step, anticipating questions and providing guidance not only pertaining to this particular method but also to general principles. I thoroughly enjoyed the class and I'm grateful to Nathan and AAE for sharing!
WOW! review by Sherri on 6/11/2017
First, I appreciate AAE so much for changing the industry and making these fantastic classes now available on line. Thank you!
I was shocked at how professional this video was. I felt like I was watching a real documentary! The handouts were more than I could have asked for and the bonus recipes were great. The fact that I own this video is awesome and thanks for doing this right! Can't wait for more!
Fantastic review by Erika on 6/10/2017
This was a wonderful online glass! Nathan was very informative and easy to follow well worth every penny the only thing better would have been to take a class in person . Thank you Aae glass and Nathan for this outstanding video
Fantastic review by Bridget on 6/9/2017
I thoroughly enjoyed watching the video and appreciated the quality of the production. The instructor provided all of the information needed to create murine. If you cannot travel to take a class with Nathan this is the next best way to learn from the creator of this glass technique. Thank you to both Nathan and AAE Glass for creating a professional video that not only provides all of the elements for creating murine, but also offering the product at an affordable price!
Worth every penny (actually worth more than charged but don't tell Tanya that!) review by okartist2be on 6/9/2017
OMG!! I never knew how approachable making murine with a kiln is. I thought it must be very difficult and always looked at Nathan's work as incredibly beautiful but not something I could aspire to. No more! I'm so excited. Thank Nathan and AAE Glass for making this possible.
Excellent and thank you! review by Jean Lacroix on 6/9/2017
I don't have live classes available in my area. Thank you for continuing to produce such valuable content. I have seen most if not all of these videos and my glass art is growing because of it! THANK YOU!!!
