Block Party: Carving Glass with Heat

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 technique that achieves a bas-relief, textured, or sculpted look in billets. (A billet is a slab of glass measuring approximately 5 x 10 x 0.75 inches; they’re most often used for casting because they have very few bubbles.) You’ll create a design from fiber paper and stack the billet on top. Your piece will be fired after the workshop and available for pickup a few days later. No previous experience necessary.
