Let’s learn something different! Combine non-traditional glass objects to fabricate ultra contemporary panels. Learn to work with Kokomo rondels, found items or head glass. Simple tips on fabrication platforms allow you to combine items of irregular thickness into panels of unlimited size. Use luxurious add-ons to create “upholstered glass”. Use common materials to produce “bronze” reinforcement that allows open-ended design and dramatic dimension. After this class you may never make a flat glass panel again! This is not your mother’s idea of stained glass!
