Details

If an image can be drawn or painted, it can be made luminous through glass.

This workshop takes that incredible fact and brings it to life. For painters and stained glass makers ready to leave behind the status quo, it shatters limiting beliefs about what glass can do. By instructing students in systematic fundamentals, the class prepares beginners and professionals alike to work with kiln-glass as an image-making medium. Upon that foundation, the class helps students build a vital understanding of glass as a unique physical material—and a uniquely powerful visual medium.

To truly paint with light by way of glass (and not simply to transpose a standard painting into it) students must gain an intimate understanding of how the material transforms in a kiln. In this dance of Heat, Gravity, and Time, glass becomes like a liquid, revealing its dangers, secrets, and riches. How does it change? How does it move? How can it be harnessed? Only students who learn to attend this molten metamorphosis discover the intricacies of expression that glass makes possible. Only to them does glass grant the power to create the luminous image.

In this class, students will learn to combine traditional glass painting methods with kiln-glass processes to make images that exude fluidity and depth. Some may even begin to glimpse how glass can unite their unique visions with light itself.
