Class, All Levels

Glass Arts Studio

Fused Glass


In the first three-hour session, you will come to understand the necessary safety and cleanup practices when it comes to using glass powders. Then, with step-by-step instruction, you will practice the process of layering frit to colorize the dried foliage you have chosen to decorate your dishware.

Frit combined with foliage creates delicate organic images that will complement your food presentation or anything you might imagine. 


Wear close-toed shoes and long pants in the Glass Studio at all times.


You will make one 9”x9” square swoop serving piece, one 3"x9" channel plate, and three 3”x3” condiment dishes.


Instructions will be sent to each student on how to dry and store your foliage before class.

Diane Bonciolini

Diane Bonciolini is the "olini" of Mesolini Glass Studio. Glass is her passion. As a full-time glass artist who has lived and worked on Bainbridge Island since 1977, she grows and changes with every project. She describes glass as having a life of its own. This multifaceted medium shows itself in each of her creations: stained glass, slumped and fused glass, lamp work, or glass combined with concrete.
