Faux Wine Bottle with Topper

Create a slumped "wine bottle" made of System 96 fusible glass and a coordinating bottle topper! This class is even better than melting wine bottles because it offers so many more design possibilities. Prism will provide both firings, use of our mold, design elements, and instruction. Students are responsible for the purchase of the base glass. This versatile dish has a handle and a cavity that measures 4x8", perfect for hors'dourves.

Saturday, June 18 at 12:30-3pm

Sharon's Latest Commission

Fantasy Landscape by Sharon Carothers

Many of you have expressed interest in Sharon's lastest project. Well, here it is! This is her original design and was constructed at Prism. This piece was commissioned by an area resident to install in his kitchen transom. You can imagine a scene like this in almost any area of the country.
Look at the difference when you put light behind it!

Fused Birdhouse Class

These are a couple of samples of our newest and cutest class. It's the Fused Glass Birdhouse Class. In this class you will learn all the tips and tricks while making your very own glass birdhouse. Sharon will provide all the fun embellishments and firing; you will need to buy the background glass and the glass for the roof (1.5 square feet total). These couldn't be cuter. So stop in today to get a better look and to sign up! Previous cutting experience required.
Class times:
Tuesday, May 31  6-8pm
or Thursday, June 16  6-8pm

Frequent Fuser's Club

Have Fun with Your Friends
Frequent Fuser's Club is one of the best nights at Prism. It's for anyone who has taken our Fused Glass Pendant class. It is just like the class, except there is no lecture, and you can make more than just pendants. Call to sign up for one of our regularly scheduled nights to make jewelry or ornaments. The best part about FF Club is that you do not have to buy your own glass. All of Prism's scrap and pre-cut squares and rectangles are available! Prices will vary based on the size of the project. For example, pendants up to 1.5" x 1.5"cost $6 each. Dichroic and the bails are not included, but they are available for purchase. Instruction is not included. Firing is included.

A Collaborative Effort

Larry Dushane along with his wife Judy have quickly become some of our favorite customers since they took their first class with us in November 2010. Judy started fusing, and Larry quickly jumped on board. This segued into igniting Larry's lost love of stained glass. Now they are fusing, stained glassing, and lampworking! So, when the Dushanes were redecorating their bathroom, they knew they wanted to incorporate glass into the design. They selected a pattern from a book and then they commissioned Sharon to rework the design to fit their space and aesthetic. The result is fabulous! Pictured below is Larry with his beloved panel! Nice work, we love it!

Sister Weekend

Vivian "Dahling" and her sisters recently enjoyed a relaxing weekend hanging out and making mosaics. Vivian came in to Prism and selected a variety of precuts to use as the center motif, and then she showed her sisters how to fill in to create the background. They were very pleased with their results!
