Fusing

The studio makes a constantly changing range of glass ear rings, some of which are displayed here. Fusing glass techniques, the slumping of bowls and other shapes, plus casting and glass jewellery are all options that can be explored in the studio, on request.

Kiln work requires specialised glasses and hardware, and as with other learning standards, kiln tuition is project-based. You can decide what you would like to make, and learn to make it. For example, some students wish to create jewellery pendants in layered glass of differing hues, while others would like to make a salad bowl, or decorative platters with native flora motifs, prehaps ear rings that change colour with the light, or even high-relief castings of architectural heritage stone work. It is all possible with knowledge and skill, materials and tools plus a good dose of creativity and determination
