All rolled up: kiln formed glass meets the furnace

March 13 @ 9:30 am - March 17 @ 5:00 pm

For: Students with at lease 1 year of fusing experience Tutor: Scott Chaseling The roll-up technique has been adapted from Venetian murrine cane pick-up technique, used by glass blowers for centuries. Traditionally glass blowers would pick up pieces of pre-formed glass cane to decorate glass vessels. The adaptation of using pre-fused panels of glass was developed by an innovative team of Australian glass artists, playing a pivotal roll within the team was Scott Chaseling. This pioneering group developed a  method…

Often in the kiln forming studio we will make these in the form of pattern bars, however true murrine cane is stretched out in a glory hole (hot box in a glass blowing studio)…
