Roll-up your glass! How warm and hot glass can live in harmony.

Some pix of the great work made by the roll-up class – where the students made a fused glass panel here at the Washington Glass School, and the following week, the class was held at DC Glass Works, where the fused panel gets…. well… rolled-up and blown into vessel shapes.

The rollup class gets a history of the process from Audrey Wilson

This process gets all the benefits of fused glass— creating differing inside and outside imagery, precise color placement, and full cross-sections of color. 

The flat fused panels get rolled up and blown.

This fused panel…
…became this sweet vessel.

…into 3-D sculpture.

…now ready to hold sharks and mermaids!

 A great class and a great time!
