About the Artist

A roster artist since 2002, Lisa has been a glass artist her whole life – from collecting beach glass to kiln-formed (fused) glass. She is self-taught, aided by piles of books and the indulgence of science-minded friends.

Teaching Philosophy

Lisa has ten things she wants everyone to know about glass, and she covers them in many ways. As students handle and cut glass, and create new objects with it, they learn about themselves as well as the medium.

"Students were very interested and worked well with Lisa. She was patient, informative and excited about the work produced." --8th grade teacher, PPS

Glass Firing Workshop for Teachers Less

If you can fire ceramics in your school kiln, you can fire glass! This fun, informative 90 minutes training empowers you to fire fused-glass projects in the kiln your school already owns. Using the method I used prior to the advent of computer-controlled kilns and kits of pre-cut glass pieces you will learn how easy it is to use this exciting material in your classroom. By learning how to create your own beautiful, one-of-a-kind necklaces, your will how simple it is to teach your students to create pieces they will be proud to wear or give as Mother's Day gifts. This same method can be used to create sun catchers which can reinforce many learning concepts such as symmetry and fractions. All participants will receive access to material kits they can use to create projects in their classrooms. For more information and to see images of projects go to and click on Teacher Training.

This training can accommodate up to 30 participants. If your community doesn't have that many, feel free to invite teachers from other schools as well.

Requirements : School kiln and access to it 30 minutes before training.
