GLASS SHORT SESSION
September 25 – 30, 2022
(Four studio days)
One and Done
This workshop is about making glass objects with single-use, hot blow molds, using a mold-making process similar to traditional lost-wax casting. We’ll create wax compositions by direct carving and/or pouring wax into molds. The waxes will be invested into traditional plaster/silica mix. The resulting molds will be steamed out and heated up. Then we’ll gather, color, and shape glass in the hot shop and blow it into the preheated molds. As compared to traditional kiln casting, this process requires less cooling time and offers more color options. The only requirement is a drive to explore, experiment, and expand; no glass experience needed. All levels. This workshop will use several parts of the glass studio. It is not a glassblowing workshop.
