Glass Summer Session 3
June 21 – July 3, 2020
John Littleton & Kate Vogel
Captured in Glass
We’ll explore adaptive mold making as a means of encapsulating ideas in glass, examining the properties of glass and considering how it can enhance our creative vision. These ideas will inform the models we create from clay, found objects, and wax to make molds for kiln casting. We’ll cover working with wax, mold recipes, glass sources, firing schedules, calculating volumes, many types of mold making, and casting with various materials including sheet glass, frit, and billets. Be prepared to experiment and problem-solve. Glass experience will be helpful, but this workshop is open to all all levels. Code 03GB
