All Skill Levels
Based on the traditional pâte de verre technique this course will diverge into experimental paths to explore the sculpting potential of glass powder to create complex three-dimensional objects. Students will work with assembling techniques to combine prefabricated components, as well as the creation of singular objects. Alongside the hands-on studio work, we will discuss glass binders, support materials for firing and firing cycles to optimize results. This class will focus on alternative mold materials, which allow for more complex forms and undercuts. Be prepared for a class in which you freely sculpt with glass powders to create hollow objects and structures.
