Lanterns are very popular right now, but they can seem a bit ho-hum….til now. We improve on the decorative lantern by taking the clear (boring) glass out, and replacing it with your own beautiful fused glass creation. Imagine the possibilities for you to match your room colors and theme with your own custom made three dimensional and reflective lantern! In this class, you will receive four clear base sections of glass, then add whatever colors, tones, hues, and design you like. We will contour fuse it (more about that in class) and assemble your custom lantern for you. Your final piece measures 13″ from base to the top of the handle, and each side is approximately 6″ wide.
We will begin with a great intro about how the process works, as in all our classes, and then discuss light flow, use of glass for effect, design for a four sided piece, and more important details that make this project unique from most other fusing projects.
This 3.5 hour course includes a lantern for each student, and all glass, tools, frit and stringer, and guidance you need to make a great piece. These make wonderful gifts, but we are pretty sure the first one you make will be going in your house!
