Fusing Glass Art and Technique Glass Class: Richard La Londe

This special class was an opportunity to study and interact with Richard La Londe, pioneer in glass fusing during an ambitious 3 day workshop!

Students worked with 3 mm and 6 mm sheet glass, frit mixtures, the liquid glass line method, multiple firings, silver foil, and various techniques that La Londe has developed including sand fuse/slumping molds. Workshop participants warmed up their design ideas with “touch drawing” monoprints on paper and completed the artwork with a unique aluminum mounting system that Richard has developed. Each participant created two fused glass wall pieces ready to hang and one plate.

Richard La Londe is known for his brightly colored images drawn with crushed glass and fused into murals and vessels. He has written two informative books, Richard La Londe: Fused Glass Art and Technique and Richard La Londe and Friends – Book II.
