About This Class

Slumping fused glass pieces can turn your single dimension works into useful objects that you will be proud to display in your home, or sell easily in studios, galleries or markets. From the very functional, to the very decorative, slumping glass adds three dimensions to your work, making it interesting from any angle.

This course takes you step by step through creating a small dish, cutting it out, firing the piece to Full Fuse, then firing again at slumping temperature, finally producing the finished piece. There is more than one example, so you can easily see how it is done. You don't need any fancy tools, and cutting out shapes other than squares and rectangles is really as simple as tracing a line - only you use your cutting blade, and not a pen. 

You will be able to watch the entire process in videos showing step by step activities. If you love the process, please leave a positive some positive feedback for the course.

For aspiring Authors - selecting the right genre to writ under is often a challenge, but one of the nicest ones is Romance. Everyone wants a bit of Romance in their lives, and people love to read about other peoples lives, and to watch them on TV and in the movies. Look at the success of some of the long running "Soaps". My master course on How to "Write  A Romance Story" will get you going in the right direction easily and quickly. Really, it's not as hard as you think.

For creative people who like to work with glass, I believe that there's a creative side in us all. Consider the wide range of subjects I teach. They are all subjects that I have learnt in order to further enhance my own creative energies in Fused Glass creation, just as you can. Fused Glass is such a beautiful medium to work in, and you can create beautiful pieces from tiny jewellery pieces up to shimmering table ware.  Check out my courses related to Glass Fusing and Photoshop and I'm sure you'll be walking away with a masterpiece of your own in no time.

Computer technology may seem like a black art to many, but again, I wanted to overcome my natural inclinations to shun this area. To my amazement I discovered a world of creativity awaited me, from writing the actual programs to run application on my iPhone, to the design work necessary to create the art work I needed to enhance these little programs. I've been programming now since the early 1980s, but still come back to my first love - Writing.
