Modeling Glass a New Way To Create
Traditional techniques of working with frit and powdered glass to create three-dimensional objects tend to be labor-intensive, messy, and require specialized glass casting knowledge. Over the past five years, Lois Manno has developed an entirely new way to work with powders to create fully dimensional work without the undesirable features of casting. The results of her efforts are unlimited possibilities. In this three day workshop, Lois will teach all the basics of making and working with Modeling Glass. Students will make multiple projects, including learning step-by-step how to make their own realistic glass feathers. Students will also be introduced to other ways of working with Modeling Glass while they explore just some of the nearly limitless possibilities. All materials included.ARTIST BIO: Glass Bird Studios
founder Lois Manno has been a professional artist and author for the past thirty years. During her college years in Texas, she studied drawing & painting, and has illustrated books for numerous publishers. A workshop offered by Bullseye Glass Company
transformed Lois' entire attitude toward making art. Subsequent training in coldworking techniques and special effects glass expanded her skill set. She has since developed several techniques unique to her own interest: creating three-dimensional sculptural glass objects without the need for molds. Using glass powder, she creates art inspired by what she loves - feathers, the sky, birds, and other forms from nature. She shares this knowledge in workshops nation-wide.
Lois has been a contributor to Bullseye Glass Blog. She is a fellow of the National Speleological Society and the Cave Research Foundation. And her work can be found in numerous private collections across the country. Lois' glass work has been included in numerous exhibits nationally. She is a member of the New Mexico Glass Alliance. Her work can be found at Weisser Glass in Kensington, MD.
