This week at The Studio, students in Micke Johansson’s class explored Swedish glassmaking techniques including graal, ariel, and the Swedish overlay. Here, Micke Johansson prepares a blank for carving and sandblasting. He’ll cut the dragonfly into the top layer, exposing another layer of colored glass, before he gradually heats the piece up to continue working at the bench.

During a two-week session at The Studio, students in Carol Milne’s class, “Knitting Glass,” shaped and carved wax to look like knitted fabrics. They then created molds around these wax forms, melted the wax, and filled the molds with glass frits and powders to fire in the kiln.
