The Art of Glass – Chana Segal

My name is Hanna Segal. In recent years, I have mastered the art of glass, specifically glass fusing.

Fusing is an art form that incorporates raw material on which the artwork is built and painted. Then, it is placed in a kiln on a special mold.

Molten in the kiln, the colors and image merge with the glass and the final piece is obtained through this fusing process. A wide variety of tools and artworks can be created this way.

The pieces include Judaica (Hamsa Talismans, Mezuzahs, etc.), jewelry and various utensils.

  • Workshops capacity: up to 5-6 participants.
  • Suitable for children from age 8.
