So for our first Celebrating Creativity Night we created artwork inspired by him.
Students started by coloring "Chinet Cut Crystal" Clear Plates with permanent markers.
We then laid them on top of the kiln. Then we "hit them with the heat." I use my hubbys professional heat gun, but my small scrap booking one from hobby lobby also works... just not as fast. We let them fold and bend as the heat says to. This year I did a few "tweaks" at the very end. I love them!
It can get a little stinky if you are not working in a well ventilated area... so make sure you are!
While they students were waiting to melt their plates we also created some large "Chihuly Inspired" drawings.
And thanks to my student teacher (that is him above in the red) we even have the display done.
