Tempered Glass Mosaics
Christine Stewart - 1 day class
Tempered Glass or safety glass breaks in a different manner to non tempered glass, instead of breaking into sharp shards it shatters into a matrix of small pebble shapes which do not have sharp edges. The shattered tempered glass is almost crystalline in appearance and when laid down in a mosaic design has a sparkling textural effect. Combine this with Hot Mosaic Components, the electric colours of Dichroic Glass or your treasured glass beads and your mosaic projects will take on a very exciting creative form – a new glass adventure to explore!
In this class you will be working on a clear glass base within a picture frame. You will create the Hot Mosaic Components of your design, be shown gluing techniques and how to lay down your design onto the glass surface with the aim of creating a transparent glass to glass Hot Mosaic project combining the elements of Tempered Glass, Dichroic Glass & Glass Beads and then add further dimension with surface layering techniques with the addition of beads and other fired components. Reverse painting coloring techniques, gold leaf and decorative papers can also be used to add more depth and shadowy intrigue to the finished piece.
