As we arrive at our meeting place we will tour various types of glass art in a gallery setting. We will then take a short walk to the nearby studio. In our classroom there will be a brief discussion of our project and some simple warm up activities for working with our to-be fused glass object. Guests will be able to choose between 3 different ideas: fused glass tree (Aspen or other), fused glass flowers, or a fused glass forest. As we talk through our project guests will learn about layout and design using frit and color as well as important compatibility considerations when using glass in a kiln. When you go home you might just be tempted to set up your own fusing studio.... it's that easy and fun. When completed, the project will be taken and fused over night and be available within 24 hours of the classroom time. Shipping of the project will be available if guests are not able to pick their art form up the next day.
Hello Flagstaff Visitor. I am a local glass artist in our fair city. I have been involved with all types of glass creations ranging from regular Tiffany styled stained glass to fused formed, cast, and abstract applications of glass. I also work with Precious Metal Clay and Encaustic. I am a public school teacher with 34 years multi-age experience as well as a private studio owner and glass instructor. You may have seen my classes offered at the Glass and Bead Expo occurring annually in April or SW Arizona Studio's where I am often asked to teach. I absolutely love working with glass.

The starting point of our experience will be in quaint, downtown Flagstaff Arizona where we will take a short walking tour of 1 to 3 nearby galleries. We will get to know each other, chat about art and make our way to the studio; all within 25 yards of the same space.
