Slumping is the bending or shaping of glass into or over a mold in a kiln. This basic kiln-glass method can be used to create plates, vessels and a variety of forms. In this class you will be guided and inspired as you explore the possibilities during hands-on studio time. Working from a collection of samples, you will use varied approaches to complete a well-unified table setting consisting of a plate, a bowl, and an accessory such as a tray. Topics for discussion include firing schedules for different mold profiles, alternative slumping-mold materials, and unconventional slumping methods. Prerequisites: First Glass Fusing Class or Introduction to Fusing and Slumping.
