Dichroic glass is a series of micro-layered metal oxides applied to glass. This process creates a transmitted color and a completely different reflected color. This causes an array of color to be displayed. The colors continue to shift depending on the angle of view. Due to the variation of firing processes, individual results can't be exactly predicted, so each piece of fused dichroic glass is unique. Tiki will show people how to score, break, and design the objects. She’ll demonstrate kiln fusing, cooling and processing.
Her products list includes earrings, rings, pendants, hair accessories and cabochons. All pieces are unique, wearable art created from Dichroic glass.
Come see this interesting demonstration!
The Bead Society business meeting will be at 6:30 pm, same Zoom info.
