About the Demonstration

Step-by-step, with examples, Anna will explain how she first carves forms from wax and transforms them through multiple molding stages into objects made from fused particles of lead crystal. “Kiln-casting” glass, one of the most time-consuming of all glass processes, will be condensed into this less than 1-hour demo!
