Fused Feathers and More
Using Modeling Glass
with Lois Manno


3-Day Workshop
Friday, September 6th  10am - 5pm
Saturday, September 7th  10am - 5pm
Sunday, September 8th 10am - 5pm

$450

Class is Full!  Please call for a waitlist.

 By combining powdered glass with a dry binder, water, and a liquid medium, Lois Manno has developed the Modeling Glass™ system that turns messy powder into a manageable material with the consistency of clay.  With this system, students are able to create three dimensional objects without the labor intensive steps involved in pate de verre, as no molds are involved or freezing required.  Similar to clay, the material can be thinned with water into a paste or formed into a shape and dried before firing.  Likewise, the need to coldwork has practically been eliminated as all clean up can be done with sandpaper before the firing!

In this three day class, students will learn, step-by-step, how to work with Modeling Glass™ to make their own life-like BlueJay feather with glass powders.  Students will also be introduced several other interesting projects, exploring various techniques like combining Modeling Glass shapes with sheet glass, and working with silicone molds in a great alternative to freeze and fuse. We’ll discuss display, mixing tricks, firing schedules, and the nearly limitless ways to work with this exciting new product.

Things to Bring: Notepad, pen, dust mask.

About the Instructor:
Lois Manno is the owner of Glass Bird Studios in New Mexico and the creator of Modeling Glass. It is a two-part system made of a powdered binder and liquid medium that, mixed with frit or powders along with a little water, turns the powder into a material that can be sculpted like clay. It is featured in the workshops she teaches.  Learn more about Lois and Modeling Glass at www.glassbirdstudios.com
