Kiln Cast Imagery in Glass: Tall Transparent Sculptures Friday, January 16th, 17th, 18th


Price: $649.00
tax free
   Take your fused glass beyond the bowl! It’s time to create light catching sculpture that touches the heart. It doesn’t matter if you’re going for a loose abstract design or a crisp photographic image, you’ll learn how to make it happen in this exciting new workshop! Each new skill and technique can be applied to small work as well as larger projects, making this a “don’t miss” class!
   
   The focus of this workshop is on the development and printing of images in tall, transparent, slab sculptures. Students will learn screen-printing, powder applications, and direct painting techniques to apply their imagery to multiple layers of glass. The image layers will then be fired, stacked, and fired again to create tall thick slabs of transparent glass. The slabs will then be cut, ground, polished and mounted on steel bases. Students will become skilled at preparing personalized images, creating their own screens, painting and layering powders and enamels, and mastering the firing schedules that deliver success. In addition, students will experience effective kiln casting and cold working techniques. Each student will cut, grind and polish their pieces, and learn how to create and mount their base pieces. Some fusing experience is necessary to participate, but advanced skills are not required to be successful!
