Instructor: Sarinda Jones

Sarinda is nationally known for her gorgeous commissions, that adorn various corporate headquarters and residences around the US. Now she's bringing some of those cool techniques to our studio for this first of its kind workshop!

This three-day workshop will inspire you to create in layers! Layers of glass powders and layers of line-drawn enamels will be combined into stunning pieces with great dimension and depth! Students will learn how to apply enamels, powders, frit, and more to glass layers. Then students will learn the secrets of stacking those layers to create solid, but relatively thin work, with a depth of interest. These techniques can translate to an art piece as well as functional work. Combining these two techniques will lend to multiple options to be used in various ways in your work, the options are endless.

The emphasis of this workshop is on the multiple processes involved in creating dimension in glass panels. Although this is not a painting technique workshop, we will cover mark-making techniques and their uses to create interest. Topics include design orientation, image selection, layouts, and discussion of enamels and how they respond to fusing temperatures, painting mediums, how to mix and apply drawn enamels and powdered glass, firing schedules, bubble control, proper kiln loading, and potential finishing techniques. 
Students can expect to complete several samples and experiments as a guide in answering questions prior to working on the main project. Please bring any inspiring or sketched images for compositions for your main project, plus a respirator or dust mask.
