Glass Furnace, is the biggest and most well equipped glass and art center in Turkey. It's built near the River Riva, stays hand in hand with green nature, has a unique atmosphere which is calm yet full of creativity...

 

  • During this class we will simply strive to become better at understanding the material of hot glass and the challenges of working it. We will focus on the challenge of making simple shapes with control and progress to more challenging shapes from there.Regardless of skill level, this class will be tailored so that everybody gets as much out of the class as possible.Simple demonstrations of the fundamentals will be given and repeated. I will spend time to explain verbally and visually the reasons things are done in certain ways and the importance of basic techniques.

  • Designed for those who have always wanted to create illuminated works of art glass, this course will combine your own individual creation with the mechanical essentials of a functional table lamp. Lighting is both practical and magical and the fruits of this course will bring light to your life. Students will design and make at least one glass table lamp with particular focus on decorative elements. Inspired by the Turkish culture and countryside, each lamp will begin with the creation of small glass tiles, which will then be incorporated into the blown glass objects.

As material is removed, patterns similar to woodgrain are created. The material is very useful for creating colorful and lightweight jewelry.
