Kiln Forming – Out of Square
Loyalty Rewards: $1150
Instructor: Emma Varga
This course will focus on a new way of 3-dimensional thinking in creating glass objects; on using properties of glass to achieve visual effects as well as to achieve sense of movement within cast glass object. Students are not required to have previous experience in glass fusing. Beginners will be able, along with students possessing advanced glass fusing skills, to create and finalize their own 3-dimensional glass objects during this 5 day course. Additionally, students will receive basic information about grinding and polishing 3-D glass objects. At all times during the course, students will have access to extensive digital gallery on file in Emma’s laptop: images of recent work as well as close-ups revealing fine details on layers inside the glass object. Expect to discover an exciting new method of creating images within transparent 3-dimensional glass objects.
During her workshop, Emma will demonstrate and explain these methods, as well as vast possible combinations of them. Students will be encouraged to experiment and play with kiln forming techniques in order to create a range of small fused, cast & constructed objects.
