What to Expect

Join Richard La Londe and D&L Art Glass Supply for an intensive one day workshop which will cover fusing float glass,

 otherwise known as window glass, and combining it with numerous materials to create a two-sided dimensional mask.

Vitreous enamels, silver, and other metal foils will be intro­duced to float glass to create a complex and unique mask, which will then be fused and slumped using a fiber blanket mold. During this workshop, participants will learn to distin­guish the different sides of float glass from one another, how to create reactions with mixed metals, and how to put an end to devitrification, helping to enhance future pieces.  Metal stands will also be created in order to display participants’ finished masks.

This is an amazing opportunity to study with a pioneer in glass fusing. Richard La Londe was one of the original glass fusing instructors for Bullseye Glass Company, has taught at Pilchuck Glass School, and multiple workshops throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. Get to know Richard, here!

 

 Float glass and 90 COE is used in this class.  The techniques explored in this class are applicable to either 90 COE or System 96 glass.
