What is glass draping? Draping glass uses a mold (usually stainless steel) without any undercuts, allowing heat and gravity to drape the glass over the mold in the kiln. With the guidance of our artist/instructor, you will use stringers, long and thin stands of glass and arrange them in a grid or plaid like arrangement. You get to pick the colors! The stringers are fused together (first firing) to create a square tile and than we drape it on the mold. During the drape firing process, the glass becomes flexible and “drapes” around the mold.
The weaving/plaid design vase will brighten any home !
