Students create glass designs through the process of burning away organic materials. Leaves and other parts of plants are used as a template to deposit powdered glass onto larger pieces of flat glass. The organic material is fired with the glass to about 1400 degrees Fahrenheit, burning away the organic material, leaving behind a realistic impression of the plant material in 100% glass. Students are encouraged to bring plant materials to work with, evergreen foliage and small branches work well. No experience necessary.
