September Screen Melts in the Glass Studio

Andrea Cothran

Ever been out on the golf course and noticed the beautiful glass pieces in many backyards here at the Ranch? How about during a barbecue at a neighbor’s home? It’s no doubt a screen melt made by one of our members in the Glasshopper Studio! Members were busy during September creating even more of these unique pieces of art. Glass is built and layered on a metal screen, then during a special firing process in our kilns, the glass drips down creating these one-of-a-kind treasures. September had more than 60 members registered for this always popular class!

Want to see more of our talented members’ pieces? Be sure to stop in the glass studio (located in the Creative Arts & Tech Center) during the ARTwalk on Oct. 21 and 22. Our studio will be filled with a variety of work for sale. It’s never too early for some great holiday shopping!
