    Visiting Artist Petra Kaiser, 3 Day Workshop

     Kiln Forming becomes a true adventure when working with Kaiser Lee Board molds and modules. They are reusable countless times and can be used for slumping, draping and castings. Nearly anything you can think of can be realized with KL-board. It is the only tool that enables us to make some of the most unusual glass art objects with surprisingly little effort. KL-board is very versatile and will definitely expand your pallet of kiln worked glass. In this workshop you will use them to make projects like wall pocket vases, fountains, cast glass sculptures and a few pieces of jewelry.

    Petra Kaiser has taught workshops all over the United States and abroad, you may know her from her popular books, Introduction to Glass Fusing, Fuse It and Glass Forming with the Mold Block System. She specializes in the creating and developing of new forms and products. One of the latest and most challenging techniques is the combination of cast glass elements and fairly thin glass - only 1 to 2 layers thick. Petra will share her ideas and techniques that she has discovered over the past 15 years of kiln forming glass via slide show, samples of her exquisite art work and demonstrations.
