I just finished a 4 day class with Roger Thomas and what a fabulous experience that was. His work is so beautiful and he’s a great teacher. I left the class with so many ideas brewing in my brain it’s almost scary. Check out his web site and then sign up for one of his classes. He’s based in the Portland area but travels to teach. He uses frit to create his glass paintings which are “iconographic” landscapes. Some of his pieces are abstracts. All of them are tremendous. The kinds of things he taught help create depth in your work without having to work too thick. Also he works quite a bit front to back so you’re firing your work face down. A very interesting way to work and the front of our piece has a nice look and feel to it. Indulge your senses by wandering over to his site and enjoying his work!
