Instructor: Anna Mlasowky
In this week you will work with glass powders and frits in unconventional ways to create 3D sculpture, objects and vessels. During the first two days we will explore talc and sand as mold materials, create our own stencils and use found objects to create layered and dimensional forms. We will explore natural phenomena such as water, wind, sedimentation and compression as well as burn out processes as effects to shape glass powders before and during the firing process. Lectures and demonstrations will be as essential to the class as time for you to make your own work. No prior experience is necessary for you to succeed in this class. The aim is to learn to observe the material and to link our observations to what we know about other things unrelated to glass. With the focus being on experimentation, the creation of finished and perfect objects will be secondary.
