Pattern Bar: Segment Slab | Methods & Ideas

Pattern Bar: Segment Slab

A segment slab is a multicolored glass block used in one approach to the pattern bar technique. The segment slab is composed of sheet glass strips that are tack-fused together, cut into parts, and fired within a containment system until the glass flows and forms an internal pattern.

In this fun and easy project-based lesson you will learn how to create a segment slab, cut it into cross-sectional pieces to reveal the internal pattern, and use the cross-sectional pieces to design and make finished work.
