Isn’t it gorgeous?
Barbara and Diane have been coming in most Wednesday mornings  working on their frit painting skills during workshop time.  They are getting really good!  Many of the panels they are making are going to Flowers of Hope.  Thank you, Ladies!

I have some new bowl molds in
 and they are so cool !
There has always been a challenge with deeper bowl molds falling straight and forming a flat bottom.
These are the new bottomless molds by Laurie Spray at Bonny Doon Glass Tools in Santa Cruz.
They allow the glass to fall and hit the shelf.
So far I’ve made several different size bowls and they’ve all come out perfectly!
Schedule a workshop to come in and make a bowl!
We have 8″, 11″ and 12″.

Painting with Frit
Learn to use frit, hand pulled stringers and confetti to quickly add dimension and a painterly quality to your fused glass art.  We’ll explore different techniques through 3 small panels, focusing on clouds, trees, water and layering backgrounds. We’ll also address combining colors and picture composition.

Find out how easy it is to develop your sketches from photos and other inspiration. These panels can be a great reference guide for future projects.

All frit, confetti, stringers, glass and lunch from Peruvian Point is included.
Glass fusing: Basics or equivalent is required.
