Powder Carving & Crackle

Powder Carving is a technique that creates a pottery like texture/design by layering different colored and dampened powder frit onto an opal base. Designs are created with everyday tools and a final batik looking piece is created. Multiple layers of powder and frit will be used.

Crackle is a technique that is often used to create a piece of glass that can be cut up and incorporated as elements in other pieces or used by itself. Many variations of crackle can be created in this project using reactive colors or pieces of silver or copper foil. All tools and materials are supplied.

Shirley is a native Oregonian who resides in Washougal, WA, who since very young has always been fond of anything glass. In high school she took her first stained glass class as an elective not realizing she’d fallen in love. After many years of her tools in storage and watching her friends explore their creativity, in 2013 she took her first FUSED GLASS class and fell back in love with the art. She got her first kiln that Christmas. She now has a teaching studio and workshop in Washougal, WA on 20 acres with 4 goats and creates beautiful pieces of art glass to use both as decoration and for practical purposes.

She is a member of the Pacific NW Glass Guild, Washougal Arts & Culture Alliance and a member of Washougal Studio Artists. She recently won 2nd place in the Cascadia Center for Arts & Crafts Isolation Art 2020 contest.

All are welcome. Contact communication folks for the invite.
