GLASS SUMMER SESSION 5
JULY 16–28, 2023
Materials, Temperature, and Magic!
Working primarily with kiln processes in the glass studio, we’ll look at how the rigorous exploration of ideation and object making requires a strong technical foundation, great ideas, and a little bit of magic. Technical information will include mold recipes, mold-making techniques, firing schedules, annealing, casting, slumping, and ancillary skills like rubber mold making. We’ll also discuss choosing appropriate glass for specific uses. In addition to demonstrations, slide talks, and daily kiln firings, we’ll set time aside for critical discussions of what we make and why we make things. Beginning to advanced students can look forward to a busy session of making molds, firing kilns, and putting more tricks into their toolboxes. All levels. Casting studio.
NOTE: This workshop is expected to have a studio fee of approximately $600 per student.
