OPTIC TOPICS: HARMONICS

Sinuous stringers in kiln glass, seriously scrumptious patterns.

In Optic Topics: Harmonics we introduce exciting techniques to physically distort ordinary linear patterns of stringers into repeatable and intentional sinuous shapes, similar in appearance to graphs of harmonic waves, hence our title!

At first glance these incredible patterns appear complex, but our carefully considered step-by-step directions, photos, and diagrams will guide you through 12 exciting projects.   Not only is this technique fun to do, but the process is also easily adaptable and very scalable, making it possible to incorporate the process into future fusing projects.  We’ve eliminated much of the guess work but none of the possibilities.

Suitable for all levels of experience, Optic Topics: Harmonics, Book 1 contains 119 pages of comprehensive instructions, over 237 photos and diagrams, and complete firing schedules in both Fahrenheit and Celsius for all the samples and projects.
