You'll learn about the basics of cutting and shaping glass for fusing, make 1-2 pieces of jewelry which you'll leave at the end of class for firing, and your finished creations will be ready for you a few days after the class. Makes a great gift! No experience necessary, all materials included.

    Artist Statement

    "My journey as an artist has been informed by my experience growing up in Japan - the nexus of a profound, traditional past in co-existence and interaction with an energetic, hyper-modern future. My choice of glass as a medium reflects my experience: it is both rooted in traditional techniques while at the same time projecting a modern materiality. I want to capture this reality in my work, balancing the old and the new, honoring tradition and innovation, exploring past and future."
