Sheri Jurnecka worked her way up at The Crucible, starting as a student, then volunteering for nine years before joining our Faculty last year. She is an expert corset maker, jewelry designer, and Jewelry and Enameling instructor. We sat down with Sheri to learn more about her time here and her unending passion for the possibilities of color.
Fascinated by molten glass, hot metal, and the occasional burst of flames? The art of Enameling combines all of this in one class. It is the ancient art of fusing molten glass to metal, is easy to learn, and you’ll see quick results. Open up your creative practices to a world of color!
Ralph McCaskey's passion for Glass Flameworking is infectious. We sat down with Ralph to catch some of his Flameworking enthusiasm and find out more about his original creations, ranging from bead blunders to finding his inner monster.
