    Powder Carving Play Day at Shirley Bishop's Studio

    1:00 pm-3:00 pm
    Studio 13 Glass Art
    Studio13 Glass Art 36311 SE 3rd Circle Washougal, WA

    Learn how to make a powder carved  “6 X 6″ glass piece. Powder carving  is a technique where you layer different color powders on top of an opaque piece of glass and then carve into the powder so you see the base and powder colors below it.


    Bring 3-4 pieces of opal colored glass for the bases.  Best size:  6″ X 6”  If you don’t have any, Shirley can provide a blank for a cost.

    Bring bright colored opal powder frit – suggested 6-8 colors – or you can use Shirley’s for a cost.

    Bring tools you want to use for engraving into the powdered frit.  Shirley will have some tools. She can also fire your pieces for $10 each or you can take them home to fire.  Bring a box or something safe for transporting them home.

    Please email, text or call to reserve your spot – 360-991-3081-

    Limited to 8 people.

    Thank you for offering to share this wonderful technique again with PNWGG members!

    General Meeting: Kyle Kraiter's "hot glass"

    1:00 pm-3:00 pm
    Kyle Kraiter's studio
    9254 SW North Dakota St, Portland, OR 97223

    Kyle Kraiter will demonstrate glass blowing at his studio.

    Parking is on SW. N. Dakota St.  The studio is the garage-like building next to the house.

    Kyle has worked in small private studios making decorative ware, the historic Boda factory bringing famous Swedish design to life, and architectural studios making large installations for palaces, homes, and hotels.

    The history, design, and technique of the many different studios Kyle has been in help to shape his work, but the people, land, and culture of the different places he has traveled are in every piece Kyle makes. Kyle’s most important influence is where he calls home. Growing up in Oregon and being a surfer he has always been surrounded by beautiful nature. Two of the strongest influences would have to be the ocean and the human form. This can be seen in a strong focus on line and form with simple coloration.


    Kyle’s work is a unique culmination of his experiences. Not just the countless number of artists he has worked with, but the people he has met, and the natural beauty of the places he has lived. You can view Kyle’s work at
