Cane Pulling Using the Glory Hole – Members only class 

Date/Time: June 14 & 15, 2022; 6:30pm – 9:00pm, Spectrum Studios

In this class, students will explore ways of making pattern cane or millefiori with the use of a kiln, a glory hole, and the furnace. This will be a two-day class lasting ~2.5 hours each evening.

 

Day 1 – We will start by creating a small five-sided box (open on one end) out of sheet glass. The open area of our box will serve as the design area that we can use to create whatever design we like using sheet glass, frit, stringers, etc. We will then tack fuse that pre-designed glass box in the kiln.

 

Day 2 – We will attach the heated pre-fused box to a punty rod and re-heat it in the glory hole to a temperature where the glass is soft enough that you can grab one end with pliers and pull the cane outward. This reduces the design size from our original 2 3/4” square to 1/4” diameter. The small cane will then be chopped into slices and can be used in any of your fused glass projects.

 

This is a great class that provides students with the opportunity to work with hot glass and become familiar with equipment they may not have. Time and equipment will be available for use beyond the class if so desired.

 

Class size is limited to eight students. Payment is submitted with registration (via PayPal). Cost is $45 per person and will include all material in Bullseye tested-compatible glass. If you are using System 96 you will be responsible to supply your own material. Please email Kerry Transtrum (kglass900@gmail.com) if you have any questions regarding the class. You may contact Dana Worley (wordana@gmail.com) for any questions regarding logistics or sign-up.
