Leave your chisel at home. All you need to create luscious numbers (or letters or other graphic imagery) is a block of glass, ceramic fiber paper, and the right amount of heat. This class introduces you to “kilncarving,” a kilnforming technique that achieves a bas-relief, textured, or sculpted look in billets (slabs of glass most often used for casting because they have very few bubbles). You’ll create a design from fiber paper, stack the billet on top of the design, and fire the piece in a kiln. No previous experience necessary.
