This class will focus on expanding students approach to the fusing kiln, using it as a way to prepare the glass for free form shaping outside the kiln. Students will learn methods and techniques for assembling transformable structures in flat glass, and bringing those structures to a working point from which they can be manipulated either inside or outside the kiln.
This will expand skill sets and possibilities in radically new ways, and open whole new areas for artist/ student exploration. Experimentation and innovation, as well as performative possibilities of the techniques will be discussed and encouraged.
