Description

Details

A drop-out vessel is created by slumping a piece of glass through an elevated mold with a hole in the center. The part of the glass that "drops" through the hole can stretch considerably, significantly informing the design of the finished piece. Coldworking to remove the rim further transforms the piece.

In this class, you'll learn how glass slumps in an elevated drop-out firing and how to design in response to this phenomenon. You'll make 3 bowls using small, medium, and large round drop-out molds. Starting with 6 mm pre-fired blanks, you'll make the small and medium vessels and practice coldworking to remove the rims. The large bowl project is more open-ended: you'll have access to a variety of frit, powder, and stringer for further palette exploration. An additional project will explore working with a square drop-out form or variation with the medium round mold. Prerequisites: Basic glass cutting skills and kilnforming experience.
