Delightful Dish Events
I have staged various events for groups to give them a chance to create their very own beautiful glass art. Some events have even included appetizers and full delightful dinners. Just let me know what you might have in mind.
Birthdays / Mother-Daughter /Co-workers/Girls Night Out
We can accommodate up to 12 (we can also do one on one )
Here's how it works:
Simply choose a type of glass listed below such as clear or white. Then choose a size/shape. Let us know prior to coming to your event so the glass can be prepared before you come. Then when you arrive you are all set to start creating your own design with other glass elements provided.
Once you are happy with the design, I will fire it in the kiln to fuse all the elements together and then it is fired again over a mold to give it the desired shape such as wavy edge. Then your dish is ready for use. Please allow up to 2 weeks for completion of firing cycles.
