This class will teach students how to use real plants to create dimensional plant imagery on glass using Rick Silas’ Ice Glass technique. Rick developed this additional process, which he calls “Plant Pressing,” and has successfully used it to create many installation pieces including countertops, tiles, walls, backsplashes, tabletops, and hundreds of unique art pieces.

Although the finished piece looks quite complex, it is a very simple art form that needs no drawing skills to create an extremely realistic and dimensional image of almost any plant. This process does not require a kiln.

This technique is just one of the many cold worked glass techniques Rick has developed over the past 40 years.  Now you can be one of the first few people to learn this multifaceted technique.

For more information on Rick Silas and the innovative processes he has invented see the July/August 2017 issue of Glass Art Magazine. Rick and his glass techniques have also been featured on the Discovery Channel and the Dragons’ Den.
