Jayne Cornelis - Glass Artist
Jayne Cornelis, Glass Maker, started off making stained glass panels to capture light and movement; however, not content with working with flat panels and wanting to create vessels, she attended Pilchuck Glass School, in Stanwood Washington. This propelled her to immerse herself into the world of warm glass. She says,”My ADD has me moving all over in the glass world.” Having attended Corning Museum Intensive studies, Pittsburgh Glass Center, as well as many other workshops, Jayne feels that she has lots of techniques available to help her capture the complexity of light and movement in glass. 

While most of her themes are eclectic and unusual, Jayne is looking forward to demonstrating one way of casting glass that can be done with relative ease. 

Kiln Casting: The Easy Way

with Jayne Cornelis

Join us July 19th from 10am-12pm with an easy way to do kiln casting. In this workshop Jayne Cornelius will teach you how to make cast glass pieces that can be made in your own kiln. You do not need a huge kiln for this process. 

Jayne will go over how to design a small 5” x 5” sculpture from clay, then make a plaster silica mold from it. She will also touch briefly on how to make a rubber mold for when you want to make multiple pieces. Lost wax uses will also be covered.

From the plaster mold you will learn removal of clay and charging the sculpture with glass frits. Also firing schedules will be addressed. She will demonstrate how to remove the glass from the mold. And then finally the finished project, and how to clean them up.

This is a quick workshop but one filled with lots of great tidbits of info. Questions are welcomed.

Jayne looks forward to showing you how to take your passion for glass to the next level.
