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.
