Introduction to Borosilicate Marbles
Level: All Skill Levels
Learn the flameworking technique of marble making using borosilicate glass rods (COE 33). This one day, 4-hour session will begin with a discussion of safety, shop set up, tool and equipment use followed by a demonstration. Students will learn to gather glass and shape it in a marble mold, attach cold and hot sealed puntys and finish the surface to make a shiny flame-polished marble. There will be plenty of hands-on practice to create a single-color transparent marble and a frit decorated marble. Annealing schedule will be provided. Marbles will be available for pick up after the class. For your safety, please wear cotton clothing, closed-toe shoes and be sure to pull back long hair.
