Deb designed these for her holiday shows, and graciously agreed to share the concept and teach the technique. Her idea to design the sconce with strips instead of flat sheet glass results in some great optical changes as the viewer sees it from different angles.

You'll start by designing a sconce in a seasonal theme, then you'll create it using pre-cut strips of glass.  You'll learn to accurately cut and assemble the strips, and how to securely dam them for the firing process. After the class, we'll fire them and do any coldworking necessary, and slump them over a curved mold to shape the sconce so that it will stand up securely. 

Tuition includes all materials and the use of needed tools.
