Merging Hand-building and Cast Glass
July 17 - 21, 2017; 5 days; 9am - 4pm
Location: Clay Studio
Students will work with Helen Otterson to create mixed-media sculptures in clay and glass. Helen will demonstrate how to hand-build small-scale, organic sculptures in clay using the ancient art of lost-wax glass casting. After completing this phase, students will then create a one-time use mold for reproduction in glass. Helen will teach distinctive techniques for working with wax, plaster-silica mold making, and de-waxing molds, along with kiln processes and firing schedules for casting glass. Prerequisite: Foundational clay and or glass experience.
