GLASS SUMMER SESSION 2
JUNE 4–16, 2023
Alicia Lomné and Sayaka Suzuki
Pâte de Verre and the Dynamic Duo
In this fast-paced, fun workshop you’ll have the opportunity to study two approaches to the pâte de verre casting process. We’ll begin by creating color samples using the colors of your choice. You’ll learn to measure the perfect blends for predictable results and to create your own blends like a cook. We’ll work with clay models, pour refractory molds, and apply frit and powder to the surface of the mold as a painter might. There are many crossovers between our techniques along with some radical differences. We look forward to experimenting, playing, and pushing the boundaries with everyone in the workshop. You can expect to finish at least four pieces plus color samples and experiments. All levels. Casting studio.
