Calyx Glass Newsletter SignUp
I offer classes, parties and troop gatherings in fused glass and mosaics. Check out the links below for a quick explanation of the different classes and activities offered. Contact me with questions or to schedule a class time. Classes run from 60 minutes to 3 hours depending upon the activity chosen. Minimum of five for a class session. (I also offer birthday parties, girls' night out, etc.)
In this 3 hour session, we create stepping stones from paver stones. We talk glass safety and finish with grouting the stones, so they're ready to take with you! Glass fusing classes can vary from 60 minutes to 2 hours depending upon the projects selected. Generally, we make a plate, a sun catcher and some pendants. The pieces will be left behind to be fired in the kiln and are available to pick up in 5-7 days.

Collaborative Projects

2014 Girl Scouts artVenture

This year's artVenture collaboration focused on re-creating and interpreting Master's paintings in fused glass. Each girl made a plate and suncatcher to keep, as well.
Nebraska City and Syracuse Middle School Afterschool Glass Art Clubs created collaborative glass curtains to hang in their respective schools in the style of Wayne Thiebaud using recycled glass. They also created fused glass bugs, snowflakes, dishes, sun catchers and pendants. Working with girls ages 12 & up, we created fused glass plates and a fused glass panel for the annual artVenture auction, as well as plates, sun catchers and pendants to take home.
During a two week period, I worked with k-12th grade students in Polk and Clarks, Nebraska. The students created two large collaborative mosaics that hang in the middle school and high school. Kindergarten and 1st grade students made stepping stones. 2nd-4th grade students made fused glass tiles and mobiles.
During one week in December, Mrs. Ortiz's k-5th grade art students created fused glass snowflake ornaments to take home, as well as making a collaborative stained glass quilt mosaic. Riley Elementary school art students worked with recycled glass and glass paints to create a collaborative glass curtain that hangs in the school hallway.
