Tis the season for lights—the great Aurora borealis that is! Celebrate and capture these stunning natural northern light disturbances using your Gemini Taurus 3 Ring Saw and glass kiln. This two-session Zoom-lead course will cover the proper use and maintenance of the Taurus 3 Ring Saw and how to make “next level” frittage to create this dynamic ten-inch by ten-inch fused glass Aurora borealis landscape. For the first session, bring a selection of your favourite northern lights photos for pattern creation or use the sample pattern provided. The finished piece will be mounted on a twelve-inch square LED wall mount light box. Wiring for wall mount application will also be demonstrated. Gain the confidence to safely use your Taurus 3 Ring Saw and add a level of intricacy to your own glass projects.
