Nathan Sandberg – Kilnforming with Rod: Vitrigraph Sessions

Nathan Sandberg 1

While glass rods are commonly used at the torch for flameworking, they can also be used alone or in combination with other forms of glass to achieve dramatic results in the kiln. In this workshop, students will learn how taking a fresh, thoughtful approach to using the Vitrigraph kiln can create decorative rods called Cane, and ultimately their cross-sections call Murrine.  After an introduction students will work in teams to create custom cane and murrine, working hands on with the vitrigraph kiln. These components will then, immediately, be combined with standard Bullseye glass rods to expand the design possibilities within finished projects. Students will be handling and manipulating hot, molten glass.
