I took a two day seminar at Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, NY this weekend. It was *awesome* and I want to live there forever.

I was able to make 10 projects! Everything was painted on a single thickness of plain window glass. The first day we concentrated on using black (and later brown) powdered enamel paint mixed with gum arabic and with either water, vinegar, or alcohol. The second day we added a silver stain to day one's projects and then concentrated on using enamel paint mixed with clove and lavender oils. All projects were fired in the kiln at least once.

These are from day one:

Reverse parchment (this one got a lot of compliments):



I used the glass muller (mixer) to create this effect:



This one reminds me of the sun:



Wee acorn (I almost washed this tile off before firing, but the teacher rescued it by saying it was sweet):



This was an experiment. I should have highlighted the leaf more:



These are from day two:

This one is on frosted glass:


This one is on clear glass:


I had fun using up all the paint I made for the trees making these pine boughs:

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Love the writing on the glass, but I have to say that I love the pine boughs the most! 

Isn't it fun taking creative workshops?  I spent most of last week taking various ones and it was exhausting but wonderful!

Class at Corning Museum??? Details, I demand details. : )

Love all of them, and even though you may not I like the leaf one best. The hints of yellow showing through make it so deep. The little acorn is very close second. Such a great result in them all. Smiley

@HSG: here is a link to their page on classes:

Corning was awesome, the teachers incredible, and the museum I could have gotten lost in for months. Now I want to move there even though the winters are supposed to be brutal.

Thanks for the link. That would be a great place to learn, from the masters of glass. Smiley

I think my favorite is the acorn!

I've heard amazing things about Corning - my fused glass teacher goes there with a whole bunch of of other glass teachers every year. I long to go one day.

Beautiful work!

I love the one you made with the glass muller. It looks like seaweed.

Very beautiful work, I guess it must be very funny to paint on the glass.
