Details

This class will be of interest to printmakers, painters, or anyone for whom visual expression in glass is desired. Starting with their own images—photos, clippings, etc.—students will examine why certain imagery appeals to them and how to isolate the potency of an image. They will then dissect, vary, and ultimately move toward meaningful abstraction. Through drawings, paper cutouts and test pieces, students will plan a series of works and complete a project. Using glass, frit, powder, and stringer, students will explore processes that enable strong composition, rich surfaces, and depth. Students will also consider both sides of the glass and investigate surface texture.
