Explore the rich possibilities of working in bas-relief in kilnformed glass. Bas-relief is found in the art and architecture of all cultures and has existed for thousands of years. A kind of carving or sculpture in which figures are raised or depressed from a flat background, it creates a subtle three-dimensional effect. Intricate surface relief, texture, color, and light interactions are possible in this “shallow space.”
The workshop begins with a brief survey of the use of relief in art and architecture throughout history. Simple materials such as fiber paper will be used to create complex forms, shapes and textures. Sheet glass, frit and powder are the primary glass materials used. We’ll also explore coldworking techniques that create additional textures and finish the work. You’ll make numerous reference samples.
