Fred Buxton, Guest Instructor.

In this class, students will explore the process and techniques used to create a multi-layer fused glass landscape that has both depth and a painterly quality. The workshop will cover overall design, planning, layout, color selection, construction and firing schedules. Each aspect of the landscape will be discussed (such as skies, mountains, trees, etc.) and options for achieving them in glass explored. Several techniques to apply frit will be shown including sifting, spooning, pallete knife and sgraffito. Over the course of four days, students will make separate components and layers that will then be integrated into a final fused glass landscape panel.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

I have dabbled in painting and drawing over the years, but never really considered myself an artist. When I retired from a career in the Federal Government in 2011, I knew it was time to feed my creative side.  It took a couple years of exploring different mediums before I stumbled into kiln formed glass. After completing my first glass project in 2014, I was hooked. Although I am primarily a self-taught artist, I have learned fusing from some of the best in the art glass community including Michael Dupille, Linda Humphrey, Paul Messink, Donna Sarafis, and Ann Cavanaugh. Although I enjoy all aspects of kiln formed glass, I specialize in landscapes, many of which are influenced by my surroundings in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. 

I opened Raining Sunshine Studio in 2016 and joined Loraine Wolff at Waterfront Glass in Keyport Washington in 2019 where I currently work and teach.

I am indebted and thankful to the many artists in our glass community have been generous sharing their knowledge, skills and experience with me.  I am committed to follow their example in sharing what I know with you and others.
