Explore the principles of glass flow, deformation, and displacement and learn to make work that captures a sense of movement within. The process will involve learning kilnforming basics, doing volume calculations, working with dams and refractory materials, and designing firing schedules. Basic coldworking methods will also be covered. As a student, you will make three pieces and leave the class with enough information to keep experimenting with this versatile technique on your own. No prerequisites, but glass cutting experience is recommended.
What people are saying about this class:
- "This class is so much fun and packed full of information, appropriate for intermediate artists. Great exploration of billet and working with volume and molds."
- "Harnessing Flow" is a great class to learn a lot of things - from working with billets and sheet together in a vermiculite box to using finishing tools like a lap grinder and sandblaster. I've been working with glass for over 25 years and it was a lot of fun!"
- "Just do it! A wonderful "new" technique with all kinds of possibilities. Think big, think small!"
