Learn to pull glass cane and make your own Murrine. Cane is a rod of glass, Murrine refers to a pattern within the glass rod. Murrine production first appeared in the Middle East more than 4,000 years ago and was revived by Venetian glassmakers on Murano in the early 16th century.
This class will cover:
What is vitrigraph,
What makes a vitrigraph kiln,
What makes a vitrigraph pot,
Kiln firing schedule,
What equipment/tools is needed to pull/cut cane,
What glass products are produced from a vitrigraph pot, Using murrine in art.
You will learn the methods and techniques to make murrine from Stainless Steel pots developed by Wayne over the past 3 years.
This is a one and a half day class. The first day (Saturday) is about a 4-5 hour classroom with all students in attendance ( no safety or equipment or special dress is required). The next part of the class will be by an appointment made by pairs of students who will take turns pulling cane, then cutting cane for about 2 hours on the day/time of their choice ( 10 am through 6pm subject to Wayne’s schedule).
Each pair of students will split approximately 5 pounds (80 oz ) of murrine. Only one pull per day is scheduled. A manual 1/2 ton cane cutting machine will be available for student use. All glass used in class will be COE 96 Spectrum/Oceanside. Students must have their own eye protection glasses when pulling cane and using the cane chopper. On the day of the pull, It is recommended that students wear a long sleeve crew neck cotton sweatshirt and close-toe shoes. All required glass, tools, gloves and dust mask will be provided by Wayne. All students will pull the same color pattern of murrine so we can keep the class cost down. Retail value of murrine produced in this class is about $10/ounce plus postage (Etsy).
