Want to Learn More About The Magic of Vitrigraph?
For several hundred years glass crafts people have created murrine, small slices of cane traditionally created in hot shop crucibles. This ancient technique required hot glass to be melted in crucibles around the clock. The Vitrigraph kiln changed that and now within a few hours artists can replicate this hot shop process and produce cane and elements for their fusing glass projects.
At the Saturday March 25th meeting Carlyne Lynch will explore the tools and design methodology for creating cane (the precursor to murrine). This meeting will be a live in-person presentation as well as a Zoom meeting (Log in and see the event listing for the Zoom link). We welcome all to either session.
It will be held in the Annex of Artistic Portland Gallery: the address is 4110 NE Fremont, Portland (see map).
Many examples of cane will be available to see and explanations on how it were designed will be revealed. Carlyne Lynch will share design tips on the innumerable possibilities for Vitrigraph. You do not need to own your own kiln, just get to know one of the many Vitrigraph owners in our Guild. See you there!
