I am very pleased to be teaching a class and demonstrating a technique in newest Ottawa Flameworking studio. The Glassshoppe is very well run, professional place, home to The Lauscha Lady. See for yourself.

Murine Demystified: Signature Cane and Flower

Students will learn simple and fast murine techniques. Building a "dough-like" mass of glass and than pulling it into a bar to be cut into segments that than can be applied to a bead or pendant.

Day one:

We will analyze and plan the design: breaking the desired idea into its smallest possible components, planning step by step. Students will learn molten glass application and specific use of heat. The actual construction of the small component will follow; two letters, flower stamen and petals will be completed and annealed over night.

Day two:
Following the plan and design construction the final complex cane will be assembled, using components made previous day. The whole glass mass will be heated and pulled into a bar of desired diameter size. Students will learn the advantage of using boro-silicate punties and hotplate to pre heat components. Segment of a final cane will be cut into chips and application and use of such chip explained.
