Artist Mark Abildgaard has developed a technique to create forms by pressing objects into wet clay and then pouring melted wax into the impressions. Students in this hands-on class will work through each step in the process with objects they've collected prior to the class (seed pods, driftwood, sea shells or found objects with an interesting texture). This includes mold making, steaming out, material calculation, and firing and annealing schedules. You'll end the class with several cast glass pieces and the knowledge to continue working on your own. No previous glass casting experience is required.
