View Full Bio

Artist and educator, Nathan Sandberg is based in Portland, Oregon. After working in the Research & Education department at Bullseye Glass company for 8 years he started Nathans LLC in 2012 and has established himself as one of the top kiln-glass educators teaching today. From Santa Fe to Zurich and Australia to Norway, Nathan is usually somewhere on the planet presenting fresh, innovative curriculum at a wide range of studios, schools and art centers.He is widely credited as the pioneer of the modern Vitrigraph methods which he began to develop at the Bullseye Factory in 2009 and has since taken to unprecedented levels of control. In 2015 Nathans LLC moved out of the basement and into a proper studio space in the Kenton neighborhood of North Portland. Today, Nathan uses OnGrade Studio as his home base and can be found there relentlessly producing work for exhibitions and developing new curriculum to teach whenever he isn't on the road. His primary material is glass although his installations commonly make use of other materials such as wood, metal and concrete. And his artwork can be found in private and public collections around the world.


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.
