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.
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.
